Sweet Khaleesi turned the tables on Money or Love on Saturday, beating her by a neck in the $50,000 Sugarloaf Key Handicap at Gulfstream Park.
Sweet Khaleesi took the lead after a half mile and held off a late run by Money or Love to win the six-furlong dirt stakes for fillies and mares 3-years-old and up.
Sweet Tooth Haven finished third, four and one-half lengths behind Money or Love, in the six-horse field.
Emisael Jaramillo rode Money or Love, who won in 1:10.34 on the track that listed as Sloppy and was sealed.

Emisael Jaramillo rode Sweet Khaleesi in the Sugarkoaf Key. He picked up the ride from Edgard Zayas, who was on board the 4-year-old filly in her three previous races.
Zayas was at Saratoga Race Course on Saturday, and rode Gunnevera to a second place finish (behind West Coast) in the Travers Stakes (Grade 1).
