Eddie Woods training grad Ice Cold was ultra-impressive in Wednesday’s $100,000 Miss Indiana S. at Horseshoe Indianapolis, drawing off with complete authority in the stretch to win by 10 lengths.

The 2-year-old daughter of Mitole was making her two-turn maiden track debut in the 1 mile and 70 yard contest. Though she was unplaced in in two starts at the Saratoga meet, she was the odds-on favorite in the Miss Indiana, and lived up to expectations with a stellar performance. She sat in fourth for six furlongs before swinging four-wide coming into the stretch. With a push-button move, she sprinted clear in just a few strides and won under a hand ride.

“This filly is a half-sister to Corningstone, who won this stakes race last year,” winning jockey Brian Hernandez, Jr. said. “(Trainer) Ken (McPeek) wanted to follow the same game plan. Corningstone came into this race last year and broke her maiden and this filly did the same today. We sat pretty comfortable and found something to finish with today.”

McPeek trains the winner for Tilted Shamrock Stables. The bay filly was bred by Deann and Greg Baer. The aforementioned Corningstone has gone on to win three stakes and $316,428.
