Blueeyesintherein kept her young record a perfect two-for-two when she won the $112,200 Debutante Stakes (gr. III) at Churchill Downs June 23, giving trainer Gary Simms a second consecutive Debutante score.
Blueeyesintherein, by Magna Graduate, appears to be a chip off the old block. The juvenile filly broke her maiden at first asking at Churchill Downs.
