Winter Princess rolled to an easy win first off the claim and stepping up in class at Gulfstream Park. Breaking from post 2 Winter Princess settled well off the pace while saving ground, advanced inside around the far turn, angled four-wide to bid between foes near the quarter pole, seized command in upper stretch, and drew off under a drive.
We spoke with trainer Steve Klesaris after the race and Steve said, “She’s been training extremely well since we claimed her. I like this filly a great deal. I was very comfortable bumping her up to run in this spot. She’s a very nice filly.”
We also spoke with Hibiscus Stables CEO Mike Oliveto after the race. Mike said, “In the backstretch she was well out of it and I thought we had a problem. The way she rallied in this race was truly impressive. After being 6 lengths out of it she wound up winning by 4. That means she made up 10 lengths on the rest of the field. That’s amazing. This is a great win for the filly and a thrilling race for the partners.”
Winter Princess earned $18,600 for Thursday’s win.
We’ll see how Winter Princess comes out of the race and Steve will point her accordingly.
