Cherokee Run, Songandaprayer Fillies Sizzle in OBS March Works

Fillies by Cherokee Run and Songandaprayer were among the fastest workers Friday during an under tack show for the Ocala Breeders' Sales Co.'s March select sale of 2-year-olds in training in Central Florida. They both drilled an eighth of a mile in :10.

Mayberry Farm, agent, is the consignor of the bay daughter of Cherokee Run. She is out of the 8-year-old unraced Woodman mare Glory Way, who is a half-sister to grade II winner Supremo (by Gone West) and to the German stakes winner Personal Love (by Diesis). Other family members include grade I winners Andover Way and Offlee Wild along with grade II winner and successful sire Dynaformer. DuCharme Stables purchased the Cherokee Run filly for $80,000 at the 2005 Keeneland September yearling auction.

Eisaman Equine bought the chestnut Songandaprayer filly for $40,000 at Keeneland last September and is her consignor to the OBS sale. She is out of the 17-year-old winning It's Freezing mare Froze, who finished second and third in grade III events. The filly is a half-sister to winners Dry Ice (by Housebuster), Runaway Froze (by Runaway Groom), and Follow the Cat (by Tactical Cat).

Three juveniles tied for the fastest quarter-mile work at :21 1/5. They were a Salt Lake -- Lady Manolo colt named A Strong Statement, consigned by Moonshadow Farm, agent for Norman Casse; a Rizzi -- Love Destiny filly, consigned by Ricky Leppala, agent; and a Trippi -- Norika colt named No Trippin, consigned by Old South Farm.
