Exciting Juvenile Filly Teardrop Could Resurface in Debutante

Teardrop, a 2-year-old half-sister to Grade I winner and $1.6 million earner Pyro, had quite an eventful first start in Thursday’s third race at Churchill Downs. After breaking slowly in the field of seven, Teardrop raced nearly eight wide throughout, but found her best stride in the stretch and kicked on to win by 3 ¾ lengths under Rosie Napravnik.
 
“She had never made a mistake in the morning and didn’t do anything right in the afternoon,” trainer Steve Asmussen said. “That’s how it can go. Obviously, she has a tremendous amount of talent and I was very pleased with her this morning.”
 
Asmussen said the Winchell Thoroughbreds LLC homebred Teardrop, a gray or roan daughter of Tapit, could make her next start in the $100,000-added Debutante at Churchill Downs on June 22.
 
Teardrop’s victory was one of three on the afternoon for Asmussen, who is second behind Mike Maker in the trainer standings with 12 wins from 32 starters. Maker has saddled 13 winners from 37 starters.
 
“Hopefully we can keep getting in the right spots and having a little success,” Asmussen said.
