Gulsary Gobbles Up Santa Anita Turf

Irish-bred Gulsary, under confident handling from Gary Stevens, took Thursday’s $54,000 allowance feature at Santa Anita by a half length as the 9-5 favorite in a field of six fillies and mares, covering one mile on turf in 1:34.78.

Fourth after breaking slowly in her U.S. debut at Del Mar Aug. 30, Gulsary, a 4-year-old filly, broke from post five and was well in-hand early at the rail around the Club House turn and rallied three-deep turning for home to win under a hand ride after tracking fractions of 23.97, 47.48, 1:11.16 and 1:23.05.

“It was good today, what we expected,” said Stevens.  “Her first race at Del Mar, she missed the break a little, which was okay, but we got strung out, way behind with no pace.  I just had to sit on her and let her run the last quarter mile…I told Mr. Proctor (trainer, Tom) that I thought she could be anything and I still feel that way.  She might be pretty special.  We’ll see what happens with her.”

Favored for only the second time in her 12-race career, Gulsary paid $5.60, $3.40 and $3.00.

Trained by Tom Proctor and owned by Glen Hill Farm, Gulsary, who ran 10 times in France before coming to Del Mar, notched her third career win to go along with one second place finish.  She picked up $32,400 for the win, boosting her earnings to $85,028.

Lady Asano, with Julien Leparoux up, rallied from off the pace to be second, 2 ¼ lengths behind pacesetting Life Is a Stone and Rafael Bejarano.

Lady Asano, off at 7-2, paid $5.00 and $3.80.

Off at 7-1, Life Is a Stone paid $4.00 to show.
