1 1/16th Dirt Grade III Stakes $100.000
1st – Heart Nebulae – Trained by Samlam, Ridden by Bravo J
In her first win since October Heart Nebulae was able to get the job done in the Matron. Before today she had never run on a muddy track but showed today she may actually have a liking for the mud as it was a none issue today. She was able to get an ideal trip along the rail, letting Pink Beauty just sit a nose ahead before making her move around the final turn.
2nd – Sunita Bonita – Trained by Mb Stables, Ridden by Hernandez B J Jr
A bit of a change in tactics for the connections in this one. Sunita Bonita has been much closer to the lead as of late but decided to try closing today and almost got the job done, losing by a neck in the end but only needed a few more steps and would have been in the winners circle today.
3rd – Pink Beauty – Trained by Gdp Inc., Ridden by Santana R Jr
Put in a big effort today as the pace setter most of the way around the track. Is an impressive looking three year old filly and is one to watch as the year moves along. Fell back to third at the wire as fast closing Sunita Bonita was able to get a nose ahead of her.
