Timeless Curls entered riding a three-race winning streak, capped by a narrow optional claiming tally here going seven furlongs Nov.29. Stretching back to a route for this stakes debut--she broke her maiden impressively over course and distance in August-Timeless Curls led the field into the clubhouse turn and forced the issue from second as favored Face It (Tapit) showed the way through an opening quarter of :23.77. Timeless Curls backed off a bit from there and let Face It take command by 2 1/2 lengths through a half-mile in :47.66. Timeless Curls, however, turned it back up on the far turn to challenge for command between horses, straightened for home in charge and wasn't for catching in the stretch. "She was training very well going into this race," winning trainer Dale Camuano said. "We scratched a couple of weeks ago out of the Thirty Eight Go Go. We had a bad post, it was a big field and we thought we'd give her a little more time. Luckily it paid off." The winner's dam had a Constitution colt in 2018 and was bred back to Exaggerator.
