Robi Jo Steals the Fantasy

The turf was firm, and only the MTOs were left out. French Breeze (Elusive Quality - Di's Delight by French Deputy) was the choice of the bettors, and Street Fantasy (Street Sense - Rich Fantasy by Richter Scale) was 21-1. Successfulprincess (Successful Appeal - Morethanaprincess by More Than Ready), Somewhat Honest (Lemon Drop Kid - Be My Lover by Belong to Me), and Invulnerable (Henny Hughes - Voodoo Baby by Ogygian) battled early. Only Exception (Tiznow - Favorite Times by Souvenir Copy) made the first move and hit the front, but her lead was short-lived. Robi Jo (Lemon Drop Kid - Lord Remember Me by Lord At War (ARG)) and Street Fantasy both went by her, with Robi Jo recovering from a slow start for a 1 3/4 length win. Street Fantasy settled for second, but it was a promising debut for her as well. Interesting that first-timers accounted for all three spots of the trifecta. Watch the Replay.
