Miss Delicious ran a strong second in her race at Gulfstream Park on Friday setting the pace but eventually getting run down by the off-the-pace winner. Breaking from post 2 Miss Delicious sped to the lead at the start and set the pace up the backstretch, held firm over pursuers around the far turn, roused for more approaching the upper stretch, held clear a furlong out, then got overtaken late.
We spoke with trainer Steve Klesaris after the race and Steve said, “She ran a very strong race. She was simply the second best horse today. We’ll get ‘em next time.”
We also spoke with Hibiscus Stables CEO Mike Oliveto after the race. Mike said, “Rounding for home I thought we had it. Prior to the race Steve mentioned that he feared Lido Key today. He actually wanted to claim that horse a few starts back. Nonetheless, it was incredibly exciting for the partners. A very fun race.”
Miss Delicious earned $7,560 for Friday’s second place finish.
We’ll see how Miss Delicious comes out of the race and point her accordingly.
Miss Delicious breezed on Saturday working 4 furlongs in 47.94 over the Gulfstream Park main track. That work was 6th of 130 at the distance.
We spoke with trainer Steve Klesaris after the breeze. Steve said, “She worked lights out this morning. She’s a very nice filly. I’m pointing her to the Stater Allowance next week.”
Steve will enter Miss Delicious to the Starter Allowance $40,000 going 7 1/2 furlongs on the turf at Gulfstream Park on March 19.
