EMMMEdie Meeny Miny Mo was not playing around! Making her career debut at Pimlico on April 23, just about a week shy of her actual third birthday, the statuesque daughter of Upstart was eager to get to the front. The 9-10 favorite took charge in the first half mile of the six-furlong waiver maiden and dared her seven rivals to catch her as she cruised home a four and a quarter-length winner.

The dark bay filly owned by Holly Hill Farm is conditioned by Miguel Vera and has been training over the Pimlico track since early March. Her first start was eagerly anticipated after the excitement of her last public appearance.

Representing three generations of runners bred by Dark Hollow Farm, the daughter of stakes winner Plum made a quite a showing at last year's delayed Fasig-Tipton Midlantic 2-year-olds in training sale in late June. She zipped an eighth-mile in 10.0, equalling the fastest time at the under tack show of any horse in the sale, and sold as the second-highest priced filly when Sallusto/Albina, agents, went to $400,000. Cary Frommer prepared and consigned the filly, who went through the ring as a yearling for $120,000.

She was the second Plum offspring to sell for six figures, joining Classic Romeo, a son of Bodemeister who was a $125,000 yearling in 2017 and $300,000 Fasig-Tipton Midlantic 2-year-old.

Plum, a daughter of Pure Prize, was Maryland-bred champion 2-year-old filly of 2011 after capturing three straight races, including the Maryland Juvenile Filly Championship Stakes. Stakes-placed at 3, she retired after winning four races and earning $128,440 and joined the Dark Hollow Farm broodmare band that included her dam, homebred multiple stakes-placed Bamba (by Not For Love).

Three of Plum's four starters are winners, including current runner Toy, who has been in the top three in six of his last eight starts. Plum's 2-year-old colt by Bodemeister is named Gig, and she has a Twirling Candy yearling colt. She was bred to Unified for this year.
