Sisterly Love on the Rise

Barely more than two months ago Sisterly Love, a 4-year old daughter of Bellamy Road out of the Dixieland Band mare Odylic, had never raced. Fast forward to today, and the good-looking bay filly is now 3 for 3 with another win over the Gulfstream Park main track. 
 
A late bloomer, Sisterly Love immediately paid dividends on her owners’ patience with an 11 ½ length romp in her debut, a 5.5 furlong affair at Calder. She covered the distance in good time, too, stopping the clock in 1.05:44, just over a second off the track record. In her second start, she jumped into allowance company. Unfazed, Sisterly Love again showed why her connections were right to be patient with her. After pressing the pace, she pulled clear in the final stages of the mile long race to win by a length and a quarter.
 
 
 
In today’s race, a one mile AlwOC affair, Sisterly Love again used her speed to her advantage. Coming out of the gate, she vied with Magic Hour for the lead. Once she had it, she never relinquished it, pulling away to win by 2 ½ lengths in a modest 1.37:13. 
 
Sisterly Love will continue to move forward. After three fantastic races, Sisterly Love will again move up in class, with her next race likely coming in stakes company. Several options are on the table, including the mile and a sixteenth G3 Sabin Stakes. No decisions have been made just yet except that her next start will be at Gulfstream. 
 
Patience has its rewards, and Sisterly Love is proof positive of that. So long as she continues to progress, she will be one to watch in the future.

All who appear to be late bloomers are not...many are just slow learners
Barns like Kinsman Stable can take their time and be well rewarded. Good luck, Sister.
Aside from her running style, she reminds me a little bit of Zenyatta. These late bloomers mean business once they hit the track.
What a Good Girl She Is !!!!!!
Good find.
Two months, three wins ... It looks like this late bloomer might have a very bright future indeed!

Despite growing up in a non-horse racing state, Ashley has been a fan of the sport since a young age. Her love for horse racing was fostered through the kids’ book series Thoroughbred by Joanna Campbell, and it was her love of reading and horses that led her to educate herself on the ins and outs of the sport. Since becoming actively involved in the industry just a few short years ago, Ashley has had the opportunity to meet many important players in the industry, attend the Eclipse Awards, see personal favorite Mucho Macho Man race twice in person, and get to personally meet and befriend many of the fantastic fans and horsemen involved in the sport.

 

Before joining Horse Racing Nation, Ashley created her own blog Wired with Ashley Paige. The idea to venture into the world of blogging came to her when she realized that she had much to say about horse racing and no one to say it to at the time. Since joining Horse Racing Nation as a contributing blogger, Ashley writes as frequently as possible as the Florida Filly. Though she mainly covers racing in South Florida, Ashley also blogs about nationwide racing, industry issues, and from time to time offers her opinion on how various changes could be beneficial to the industry as a whole. Most recently, Ashley was selected to participate in the NTRA Top Thoroughbred Polls.

 

An alumni of Macon State College, Ashley is from Central Georgia but is currently living in New Hampshire with her husband Chris and their two sons Charlie and Michael. A stay-at-home mom, Ashley juggles parenting with blogging and her other passions. Aside from horse racing, Ashley is a fervent football fan, enjoys reading and studying history, and hopes to someday author a historical work covering the Tudor period as well as biographies of horse racing’s stars, equine and human alike.
