Darby Dan sales grad takes Federal Way Handicap

Feeling Fancy, consigned by Darby Dan Farm at the 2008 Keeneland September yearling sale,
became the latest stakes winner sold at auction by the historic farm when she took the Federal Way H. at Emerald Downs on May 9.

The 6 1/2-furlong race is for 3-year-old fillies. Feeling Fancy was the 3-2 post time favorite by virtue of her 8 3/4-length romp in an Emerald allowance race some two weeks ago. She didn't disappoint her backers as she raced just off the flank off pacesetter Snowbound Marquita, putting that foe away past the quarter pole and drawing off to a 2 1/2-length victory in 1:15 1/5.

Feeling Fancy is now 3-0-0 in six starts, with earnings of $51,835. Her owner Chris Randall was the buyer at Keeneland, where he signed the ticket for $19,000 for the bay daughter of Sky Mesa. She was bred in Kentucky by Coffeepot Stable. Feeling Fancy is out of the mare Miss Thermal Tech, who earned $356,658 and finished second in three stakes at Belmont Park. She is the dam of three additional winners.
