Xtrema became the first winner for Exaggerator  when she took a $32,520 maiden special weight for 2-year-old fillies June 11 at Golden Gate Fields.Xtrema was making her debut in the five-furlong test on the all-weather track.

Ridden by David Lopez, she settled in third as Maggie’s Magic set fractions of :21.75 and :46.76 through a half-mile and led into the stretch.

Coming out of the turn, Xtrema was still third but showed a quick turn of foot to pass the leaders in the stretch and open a four-length lead at the wire to finish in :59.62 on a fast track.

WinStar Farm’s Exaggerator, a three-time grade 1 winner by Curlin , finished second in the 2016 Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (G1) and won the Preakness Stakes (G1).
