Deedeezee Wires Field in GP West Fnale

Deedeezee wrapped up a sloppy Thursday at the Gulfstream Park West meet with a gate to wire win in the eighth  and featured race.

Deedeezee beat Image of Rachel by 3 1/2  lengths in the $34,000 allowance for fillies  and  mares  three-years-old and up.  Lobelia finished third, 7  1/2 lengths behind Image of Rachel.

The race was run at  1 1/16 miles  on the sloppy and sealed dirt track, after being switched from turf because of  rain.

The 3-year-old Deedeezee won in 1:46.20, a fast  time  for the  Calder track under  the conditions, She was ridden by Edgard Zayas and  is trained by Todd Pletcher  who was  not at  Calder.

Deedeezee was the 2-1 second choice in the field that was reduced  to six horses due to  scratches.

Truth,  a three-year-old making  her first  turf start, is the even-money favorite. She finished last apparently  having difficulty with the track.

Deedeezee was among four winners that led  at  every call.  In general, horses that were on or near the early lead fared well on the  eight-race card.
