Consider her included

I've been remiss in reporting a maiden-breaking win for a member of my 2010 juvenile sales selections, which is particularly surprising considering her name is one that begs for your attention.

Include Me Sir, unplaced in eight prior starts, managed to collect a victory at Delaware Park on Wednesday when what was to be an 11-horse field scratched down to three when the race washed off the turf. She was sent off as the third-favored in the trio, as well, paying $5.80 to win in a race with (obviously) no place or show wagering.

Ricardo Santana Jr. and Include Me Sir pressed the pace set by race-favorite Assignation, nosed in front after three-quarters run in 1:14 and change, then finished the sloppy mile-seventy in 1:45.93. Sweet Somthings was third all the way around.

Include Me Sir was bred in Kentucky by Robert W. Sanford. She is the property of Fairview Enterprises LLC and was trained for the win by Randy Nunley. With a win from nine starts, she has earned $13,635.

I selected Include Me Sir (Include-Sir Harriett, by Sir Harry Lewis) as Hip 444 at Ocala April, where she failed to sell at a $37,000 bid. While that price now appears to have been not enough, yet too much, Include Me Sir has some talent down there somewhere. She breezed 34-flat and had seven winning older siblings from eight foals, including two stakes victors, OVERPASS (Slavic) and SIR FIVE STAR (Five Star Day). I really like her sire, Include, and loved his daddy, Broad Brush.

With the victory, the 187-member sales-tip class now numbers 105 winners, for 56.2 percent.
