Selcourt took all the money for her debut and looked a winner every step of the way, romping in the stretch to an impressive graduation and TDN Rising Star status. Coming in off an upbeat worktab, including a best-of-31 bullet from the gate over the local main in :59 flat Feb. 1, the chestnut was bet hard throughout and left the gate as the 4-5 chalk. Sitting second early, a little over a length adrift of a sharp :21.35 quarter, Selcourt sidled up to the frontrunner in hand at the top of the lane and quickly overtook that foe once straightening. The only question from there was how far, and the favorite cruised under the wire 9 1/4 lengths to the good. Lyrics (Speightstown) was up late for the place. The victress’s dam is a full to SW/MGSP Open Concert, while her second dam is a half to GSW Fashionably Late (My Gallant). Azure Spring has a 2-year-old Lookin At Lucky colt and a yearling colt by Temple City. She was bred to Twirling Candy last term. Foaled and raised at Columbiana Farm for Owner/Breeder Keith Abrahams (KY); Trainer John W. Sadler.
