7th-Fair Grounds, $45,000, Msw, 12-20, 2yo, f, 1 1/16m, 1:45.48, ft, 2 1/4 lengths. BERNABREEZY (f, 2, Bernardini–Super Allison {SW, $157,043}, by Super Saver) lagged well back before finishing with interest to be fifth debuting over a mile on the Churchill dirt Nov. 14 and was made a 24-5 proposition stretching out to two turns here. Breaking a length or two slowly, the dark bay traveled all by herself in second last behind fractions of :24.51 and :49.04, started to creep closer inside the three-eighths pole, swung five wide off the far turn and charged to the lead nearing the furlong grounds, kicking clear from there for a 2 1/4-length success. Favored Hidden Wonder (Curlin) completed the exacta.

The winner is the first foal out of her dam, a $72,000 Fasig-Tipton Winter Mixed purchase by Machmer Hall in 2018 who produced a colt by Catalina Cruiser this term before being bred to Volatile.
