Sky Kingdom filly draws off to break maiden by six

Duniverse used a sudden burst coming out of the turn to assert herself en route to a 6 1/4-length maiden win on Sept. 18 at Delaware Park.

The Sky Kingdom 2-year-old filly sat just off the pace for the first five furlongs before rolling past the front runners. Once the outcome was assured, she was geared down late in the one-mile contest.

Duniverse is owned by Philip DiCosmo and was bred in Kentucky by Pat Tanner. The bay filly is from the family of multiple stakes winners Prom Shoes, Wildcat Shoes and Flight Forty Nine.

Sky Kingdom’s first crop of 2-year-olds this year are led by the colt Wrecking Crew, who finished second in both the Del Mar Futurity (G1) and Best Pal S. (G2).
