Churchill Downs Winner for Competitive Edge
Promising filly Misty Blue (2f Competitive Edge x My Names Nicole, by Charismatic) scored a tenacious victory at Churchill Downs on Thursday.
Prepared by Michael Maker, Misty Blue improved sharply at her second start showing plenty of speed to share the lead before sticking on gamely to score a head win in the six furlong maiden.
A $25,000 yearling that made $105,000 when re-offered as a two year-old, Misty Blue is the sixth winner from My Names Nicole, a half-sister to stakes-winner Bobe Bela.
Misty Blue is the 11th first crop winner for Competitive Edge, who has an impressive three stakes-winners on the board in Sassy Seneca, Fierce Lady and My Italian Rabbi.
