After Justoneatheguys rushed up to engage Rose Petunia for the lead and then dropped back, it was Lemon Song’s turn, and she made a bold outside run to hook Rose Petunia into the far turn. Those two dueled around the turn and into the stretch, when Rose Petunia called it quits and Lemon Song — a daughter of Lemon Drop Kid going a distance on grass for the first time after she was beaten 26, 20, 22 and 23 lengths sprinting on dirt — took command. Yet another longshot score on turf at this meet for Coa, and just the third winner this year for Leo O’Brien, the trainer of Fourstardave.
Love that story. Sometimes they hold back setting up for the longer turf race.
I believe Leo O'Brien is John Velazquez father in law. Not positive.
Trainer Mike Maker wins 4 of the $100,000+ starter stakes at Gulfstream. That's what I call a good day at the track.
