Buongiorno A Tutti Stable’s 4-year-old filly Sweet Repent breezed an easy six furlongs in 1:16 4/5 at Calder Race Course Friday morning for trainer Dave Braddy as she is kept on edge for her next engagement in the $300,000 Sunshine Millions Distaff at Gulfstream Park on Sat., Jan. 30.

The Florida-bred daughter of Repent will bid for her fifth consecutive victory in the 1 1/8 miles test, most recently posting a hard-fought nose victory over Marilyn Seltzer’s Amazing in the $100,000 Stage Door Betty Handicap (G3) at Calder on Dec. 26.

Sweet Repent’s streak began with a nose victory in a Calder allowance race on Aug. 28. She then scored another narrow victory by a nose in the $75,000 Judy’s Red Shoes Stakes on Sept. 26, and a 3 ¼ lengths romp over Farnsworth Stable’s favored Jessica Is Back in the $400,000 Elmer Heubeck Distaff Handicap on Nov. 14 before the Stage Door Betty. 

Both Amazing and Jessica Is Back are expected to challenge Sweet Repent again in the Sunshine Millions. California-based trainer Jerry Hollendorfer, Bob Baffert, Vladimir Cerin, Richard Mandella and Darrell Vienna each have nominees eligible for the race.
