Gulfstream Friday Feature Won By Sweetontheladies

The colt Sweetontheladies took an early lead and went on to beat the late-running Chatiment by 3 ½ lengths in Friday’s second and feature race at Gulfstream Park.

With Marco Meneses riding, Sweetontheladies ran six furlongs in 1:10.42 in the six-furlong allowance/optional claiming race for two-year-olds.

The race was on the track listed as fast, and the time was good for a two-year-old.  Sweetontheladies earned a 91 Equibase speed figure—also good for a two-year-old.

Henry Collazo trains Sweetontheladies, who has won both of his starts.  On July 2, he won  a five-furlong maiden special weight  race at Gulfstream.

Sweetontheladies is a Florida-bred son of Twirling Candy. He is owned by Four Horsemen Racing Stable and Lady Lindsay Racing, two long-time clients of Collazo.
The win by Sweetontheladies was Collazo’s seventh in  seventeen starts in the Gulfstream summer meet.

The purse for Friday’s race was $43,000 and the optional claiming price was $75,000.

The field was reduced to four following the morning scratch of Francesco Appeal.

All four starters had won maiden races at Gulfstream.
Sweetontheladies was third choice in the betting at 3-1, behind Chatiment who was 5-2.

Inkspired, the 1-2 favorite, tracked Sweetontheladies through  the first half mile.  But Inkspired faded in the stretch and finished third, 2  ¾ lengths behind Chatiment.

It was another 12 lengths back to Thanks God, the only entrant in for the tag.  He was not  claimed.
