Favored at 9-5 while making her return to stakes company in Saturday’s Suncoast S. at Tampa Bay Downs, Breeze Easy’s CURLIN’S CATCH (f, 3, Curlin–Catch the Thrill, by A.P. Indy) split horses decisively at the entrance to the home stretch and powered clear to score by about four lengths. Beaten for speed in a scratched-down field of seven, the Ontario-bred raced slightly worse than midfield through the opening stages with a couple of rivals behind. Ridden quietly down the backstretch, she caught the eye when rallying between rivals three furlongs out, took an inside path into the lane and ran out a convincing winner. Pacesetting Be Sneaky (Into Mischief) set a moderate pace and held for second ahead of Il Malocchio (Souper Speedy) in third. Bred on the very potent cross over A.P. Indy-line mares that has been responsible for the likes of champion Stellar Wind and other Grade I winners Global Campaign and Paris Lights, Curlin’s Catch is the 74th black-type winner for her sire.
