Pianist put away pacesetter Assateague in upper stretch and scurried home two lengths in front for her second graded win of the year in the $200,000 Athenia Stakes (gr. IIIT) oct. 12 at Belmont Park.
Benefiting from a quick start, Pianist set a fast pace en route to a gate-to-wire victory in the Gallorette Handicap on the May 18 Preakness Stakes (gr. I) undercard at Pimlico Race Course.
Red Piano, a winning daughter of Red Ransom, fetched $150,000 from Jayne Johnson, agent, early in the Fasig-Tipton February winter mixed sale in Lexington Feb. 11.
