Unlike any of her previous starts, there were no anxious moments for Fred Wasserloos, George Greenwalt and trainer John Salzman Jr.’s Limited View as she romped to a front-running six-length score in the $100,000 Maryland Juvenile Filly Championship on Dec. 9.

A narrow second choice among 10 2-year-old Maryland-bred fillies, Limited View ($6.40) hit the wire in 1:23.94 under Hall of Fame jockey Edgar Prado, who has ridden the bay daughter of Freedom Child to each of her four victories.

It was the third straight win and second consecutive stakes for Limited View, who had to overcome a near-disastrous break and rally from as many as 13 lengths back to win the Maryland Million Lassie in October. She spent several mornings schooling at the starting gate in preparation for Saturday’s race.

“Every time you never know what’s going to happen. It’s not one thing. Sometimes it’s the paddock, sometimes it’s the post parade, getting her to the paddock. The last time it was the gate,” Salzman said. “My hat’s off to the gate crew, Edgar, everybody that helped me along with her. She’s a nice filly.”

The first stakes winner for her freshman sire, who stands at Country Life Farm in Bel Air, Limited View’s latest score propelled Freedom Child to the top of both the Mid-Atlantic juvenile and freshman sires lists. Bred by Barbara G. Smith out of the Not For Love mare Loves to Glance, the filly was purchased by Salzman for $5,200 at the 2016 Fasig-Tipton Midlantic Fall Yearling sale. She now has earned $177,096 from five starts.
