EDA (f, 2, Munnings–Show Me, by Lemon Drop Kid) summoned $550,000 at OBS March after breezing in :10 flat on the Ocala venue’s synthetic surface. She was dispatched as the 2-1 second choice in this career bow behind even-money stablemate Censorship (Tonalist), who brought $300,000 from longtime Baffert clients Pegram, Watson and Weitman at the same auction. Stalking from a joint second as Ko Olina (Stanford) put up a :22.53 first quarter, the the bay confronted that foe turning for home. The pair drew well clear of the field as they battled it out to the wire with Ko Olina crossing first by a desperate nose. It was 13 1/2 lengths back to the next horse. However, following a stewards’ inquiry, Ko Olina was disqualified and placed second for interference in late stretch and Eda was promoted to first. The winner is the first foal out of Show Me, who failed to get in foal to Bolt d’Oro the following year, but produced a Karakontie (Jpn) filly this term.
