- No.3 Laura’s Patriot 2-1
- No.4 Southern Sunshine 5-2
- No.5 Samus 4-1
- No.1 Saratoga Karaoke 6-1
Laura’s Patriot was a good looking winner last out against $40,000 state breds to break her maiden in her first go off a 5 1/2 month layoff. She was making her first start on turf and while her pedigree is light she does have a sib that also is a turf winner. The Gullo barn has been very live in ’15 and is 30% winners with runners making their second start off a 45-180 day layoff.
Southern Sunshinedueled for the early lead, had to steady in traffic nearing the 3/16′s and weakened to finish third last out in the mud. She tried turf twice while in the maiden ranks and ran pretty well with a second and a third. She has one sib that is a grass winner.
