Maggie Slew, the final offspring of 1977 Triple Crown winner Seattle Slew, finished second in her career debut in the third race at Churchill Downs on Sunday.

The 2-year-old Indiana-bred Maggie Slew, owned and bred by Don and Dana Myers' Swifty Farms,was sent off at 6-1 and finished 1 3/4-lengths behind longshot Azevedo ($50.80).

Trained by David Vance, Maggie Slew rallied from fifth in the field of nine under jockey Juan Molina to nip Thunder Bayou by a nose in the five furlong maiden event.

Seattle Slew died on May 7, 2002, the anniversary of his Kentucky Derby win.
