ITALIAN SOIREE (f, 2, Uncle Mo–Social Call, by Smart Strike), a well-bred debutante who was hammered to agent Seth Morris for $600,000 at the OBS March 2yo In Training Sale after working an eighth in :10, overcame a tardy start before producing a strong finish to record a resounding win. After veering in sharply at the start bothering her rivals Home Wrecker (Quality Road) and As Catch Can (Mo Town), Italian Soiree, sent off as the 5-2 second choice in a field of five, recovered to quickly to chase the 3-4 favorite and eventual second place finisher Yellow (Bernardini)’s pace set in :23.21 and :46.66. Under Flavien Prat, she responded well to two taps from his left-handed crop in mid-stretch to readily kick clear. Italian Soiree is full-sister to the SW colt Be Better ($333,300), winner of the 2023 Deputed Testamony S. at Laurel Park. Bred to City of Light for this season, Social Call was purchased by Mike Repole for $325,000 in foal to Uncle Mo at the 2016 Keeneland November Sale.
