Mayan Sky wins spirited maiden battle

Sky Kingdom got his latest First-Crop winner on Aug. 7 when Mayan Sky battled her way to a one-length victory in a five-furlong maiden race for 2-year-old fillies at Prairie Meadows.

Trading the lead the entire trip with Holiday Romance, Mayan Sky put away her foe with a late surge to emerge victorious.

The winner is owned by her breeder Mario Silva and is the first foal out of Golden Emblazon, a half-sister to stakes winner Wait N C Spring.

Multiple graded stakes winner Sky Kingdom’s first winner Wrecking Crew, an $875,000 purchase at the Fasig-Tipton March 2-year-old sale, is one of the favorites in Saturday’s $200,000 Best Pal S. (G2) at Del Mar.
