Madone made amends for her first career loss in the Breeders’ Cup with a decisive score in the Senorita Saturday night. Away well from her rail draw, the bay saved ground in a joint third through a :23.85 opening quarter. Biding her time as the dueling leaders shot off to a clear lead through a :47.05 half-mile, Madone split those foes in the lane and charged clear to score.

A debut winner on the Del Mar lawn July 31, Madone captured the Juvenile Fillies Turf S. There next out Sept. 6 and captured Santa Anita’s Surfer Girl S. Oct. 4. She suffered her first and only loss at Keeneland in the GI Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf S. Nov. 6.

Pedigree Notes: Madone is the third graded winner and one of four black-type achievers for his sire Vancouver. She is the 14th graded winner and one of 46 black-type scorers produced by a daughter of Cherokee Run. Indian Love Call’s recent produce includes a juvenile filly by Astern (Aus) and a yearling colt by Cairo Prince. She was bred back to Gormley.
