Shalromy, who finished three lengths off the 'TDN Rising Star' display of Kelina (Ire) (Frankel {GB}) when second on the turf here in early August, graduating at the same venue later that month, and closed her three-race juvenile campaign with an eighth in ParisLongchamp's Oct. 2 G1 Prix Marcel Boussac when last seen. Reined back and positioned in rear after the break, she made relentless headway in the straight to go fourth passing the furlong marker and quickened in style nearing the line to deny British raider Lady Bullet by a neck for a career high. Shalromy, a G1 Poule d'Essai des Pouliches entry, is the lone reported foal out of a winning half-sister to G3 Prix de Guiche third Gardol City (Fr) (Elusive City) and the dual stakes-placed Desert Icon (Fr) (Sea The Stars {Ire}). Her unraced third dam Peace Signal (Time For A Change) is kin to six stakes performers headed by multiple Group 1-winning sire Peintre Celebre (Nureyev). The January-foaled bay is kin to a 2-year-old filly by Territories (Ire) and a yearling filly by Bated Breath (GB). Video, sponsored by TVG.
