Top-ranked freshman sire Magna Graduate got his third winner from his first crop on July 15 at Ellis Park with Givmethreestepsmr [VIDEO] ran away to a 4 1/4-length win going 5 1/2-furlongs in her career debut.
Sent off the 2-1 favorite over the sloppy track, Givmethreestepsmr broke smartly to tussle with Lucky Mary G. through the first half mile. Jon Court put his foe away near the top of the lane, and the dark bay filly drew off with ease in the final furlong.
Magna Graduate sits atop the 2012 Freshman Sire List with $127,715 in progeny earnings, with the undefeated filly Blueeyesintherein pulling in the lion's share of those earnings from her victory in the Grade 3 Debutante S. at Churchill Downs.
