2YO STRAWBERRY TEQUILA Rolls in Belmont MSW

Finishing runner-up in a Saratoga Maiden Special Weight in her debut to a next out stakes-placed filly, STRAWBERRY TEQUILA made an impressive third start winning by a dominating 5 1/2 lengths. In this off-the-turf six-furlong Belmont Maiden Special Weight, the 2-year-old filly by DAAHER moved up to challenge for the lead as they turned for home and drew off through the stretch on a sloppy sealed track. STRAWBERRY TEQUILA was a $130,000 purchase out of this year’s Fasig-Tipton Midlantic 2YO Sale by her trainer Bruce Brown as agent and races for Bruce Lunsford. Bred by Stonewall Farm out of the stakes-winning/Graded-placed Tequilas Dayjur, by Dayjur, she is a full sister to stakes-winning, graded-placed CLOTHES FALL OFF ($366,160) who will be offered at the upcoming Fasig-Tipton November Sale.
