Gypsy Robin Controls Pace in Beaumont

King 9 Stables LLC, Gatewood Bell, Bret Jones and trainer Wesley Ward’s Gypsy Robin made an impressive return to the races by romping to a three-length victory in the 27th running of the $150,000 Beaumont (G2) for 3-year-old fillies before a sun-splashed crowd of 19,371 on Sunday at Keeneland.

 

Ridden by Jeffrey Sanchez, Gypsy Robin broke on top in the field of six, repulsed a modest challenge at the head of the stretch from favored Sacristy and Livi Makenzie and then cruised home in 1:28.46 over the Beard Course of seven furlongs, 184 feet.

 

Gypsy Robin, a $27,000 Keeneland September Yearling Sale purchase of 2010, led the field through fractions of :24.15 for the first quarter-mile and :49.10 for the half and had plenty left to give Sanchez his first Keeneland stakes victory and Ward his third.

 

A Kentucky-bred daughter of Daaher out of the Indian Charlie mare Feisty Princess, Gypsy Robin broke her maiden at first asking here last spring with a 7½-length victory and closed 2011 with a victory in the Sorority at Monmouth Park. Sunday’s victory was worth $90,000 and increased Gypsy Robin’s bankroll to $185,000 with a record of 5-3-0-0.

 

Gypsy Robin returned $6.60, $3.40, $2.60. Sacristy, ridden by Julien Leparoux, returned $2.80 and $2.20 and finished 2¾ lengths in front of Livi Makenzie, who paid $2.80 to show under Greta Kuntzweiler. It was 3¾ lengths back to Milania, who was followed in order by Piskacha and Born Bullish.

 

According to Trakus, which records individual sectional times and distance covered for races at Keeneland, Gypsy Robin  was the only filly in the race to reach a peak speed of 40 miles per hour.
