A daughter of Successful Appeal was among the standouts May 16 during the first session of the under tack show for the Fasig-Tipton Midlantic sale of 2-year-olds in training. The bay filly was the fastest worker at an eighth of a mile, covering the distance in :9 4/5 over the track at the Maryland State Fair Grounds in Timonium, Md.

Their dam, Miss Gem (by Exclusive Gem), was a winner and is a half sister to grade II winner Kelly Kip (by Kipper Kelly).
Three horses turned in the quickest quarter-mile works, each posting a time of :21 3/5. They were a Yes It's True–Lady Chip colt named Yes It’s Chip, consigned as Hip No. 6 by Crane Thoroughbreds, agent; an Empire Maker–Limes ’n Lemons filly named Ms Lady Destiny, consigned as Hip No. 22 by Eddie Woods, agent for Daybreak Stables; and an Officer–Ms. C D Player colt, consigned as Hip No. 76 by Marshall W.
