Clement Trio Possible for South Beach

Trainer Christophe Clement has begun shipping runners from his powerful stable out of his Payson Park winter quarters back to New York, but will continue to have runners for spots that fit during the final weeks of the Gulfstream Park meet, including the $50,000 South Beach Stakes next Saturday (Apr. 10).

Clement has a trio of fillies and mares eligible for the South Beach to be run at 7 ½ furlongs on the turf course  – Oak Bluff Stable’s 4-year-old filly Akilina, Jon and Sarah Kelly’s 5-year-old Irish-bred mare Carribean Sunset and Waratah Thoroughbreds’ 4-year-old filly Miss World.

Carribean Sunset is a daughter of Danehill Dancer and an intriguing prospect that hasn’t run since a solid third-place finish in the Palomar Handicap (G2) at Del Mar on Sept. 9, beaten a length as the favorite. In her two previous starts she won the Dr. James Penny Handicap at Philadelphia Park and narrowly missed when second by a head to Eclipse champion Forever Together in the Diana Handicap (G1) at Saratoga.

Akilina is a daughter of Langfuhr and finished third in the Honey Fox Stakes (G3) over the Gulfstream course on Feb. 20 in her first appearance since shipping to Louisiana to score in the Pago Hop Stakes at Fair Grounds on Dec. 5. Miss World posted a 13-to-1 upset winning the Garden City Stakes (G1) at Belmont Park in September.
