Awsum Roar won her second in a row for us racing gate to wire in a hand ride at Gulfstream Park on Friday. Breaking from post 1 Awsum Roar sped to the lead at the start, continued to lead the way and widened to a clear advantage out of the turn, came out wider in stretch run and kept clear under steady encouragement. Awsum Roar was claimed away from us out of the race.
We spoke with trainer Steve Klesaris after the race and Steve said, “This filly has her issues so it’s not a terrible thing to lose her in this spot. The most important thing was to get the win which we did.”
We also spoke with Hibiscus Stables CEO Mike Oliveto after the race. Mike said, “She looked like a very sharp horse and, being a New York-bred our plan was to claim her and bring her to New York once she got out of jail. She developed some issues and that never materialized. So we shifted gears and maximized her income in Florida.”
Awsum Roar earned $10,800 for Friday’s win.
Awsum Roar is entered to run in Friday’s 3rd race at Gulfstream Park which is a $10,000 Claiming race going 5 furlongs on the turf for fillies and mares 3-years-old and up. She drew post position 1 and jockey Samy Camacho is named to ride. Camacho is currently ranked 6th in the Gulfstream Park jockey standings with 15 wins and a 14% winning percentage.
Awsum Roar is currently the 7-5 Daily Racing Form morning favorite in the race. She’s the DRF Consensus selection to win the race as their best bet of the day. All three DRF handicappers select her to win the race with one being his best bet of the day.
