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.

$113,000+ Superfecta.
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.
