3rd-Churchill Downs, $98,185, Alw (NW1X), Opt. Clm ($100,000), 5-4, 3yo, 1 1/16m, 1:43.17, gd, 7 1/2 lengths.
MINDFRAME (c, 3, Constitution–Walk of Stars {SW, $154,944}, by Street Sense), a dominating 13 3/4-length winner of his seven-furlong debut on the Florida Derby undercard at Gulfstream Park Mar. 30 en route to ‘TDN Rising Star’ honors, handled his first two-turn assignment with aplomb, cruising home the easiest of winners in Churchill allowance company Saturday morning. Drawn the outside in a field of eight, the $600,000 Keeneland September yearling bounced away so well that he was able to clear all the inside traffic and drop down onto the fence already entering the first turn. Able to slow things down up front through a half-mile in :49.18, Mindframe–carrying the St. Elias colors–took some token pressure on the turn, but was always traveling well within himself and when Irad Ortiz, Jr. said go in upper stretch, it was all over. Mindframe went clear with every stride entering the final furlong and was taken in hand a good 70 yards from the wire, scoring by a very easy 7 1/2 lengths as the 2-5 chalk. It was the second win on the program for Constitution, whose son Catching Freedom is a live chance in the GI Kentucky Derby later on in the afternoon. A half-brother to Hollywood Walk (Animal Kingdom), SP, $224,031, the Maryland-bred Mindframe is out of a stakes-winning half-sister to MSW & MGSP Strike the Moon (Malibu Moon) and to MSP What Time It Is (Partner’s Hero), the dam of MSW Never Enough Time (Munnings). Walk of Stars is also responsible for the 2-year-old colt Lonesome Road (Maclean’s Music) and is due to Jack Christopher this season. Sales history: $600,000 Ylg ’22 KEESEP.
