Super Hi-5 Carryover at $2,972 for Friday
HALLANDALE BEACH, FL– Delta Girl, a 3-year-old daughter of Majestic Warrior, made an auspicious debut in Thursday's sixth race at Gulfstream Park, scoring an authoritative triumph by 8 1/4 lengths under a hand ride.
"That was breathtaking," jockey Tyler Gaffalione said. "She did it so easy."
Trained by Ralph Nicks, the Kinsman Stable's homebred filly broke cleanly from her rail post position and settled in second along the backstretch, several lengths behind Arty'sbourbangirl, who set solid fractions of 22.04 seconds and 44.96 for the first half mile of the six-furlong maiden special weight event. The long-striding Delta Girl closed the gap on the turn and drew away through the stretch without much urging from her rider.
"We were a little worried about the 1-hole, but Ralph always has them ready," Gaffalione said."She broke sharp and I just sat there. It seemed like the horse in front was going pretty quick, so I waited for her to come back to me, and she just swallowed her up. She was just galloping."
Delta Girl ($6.40) ran six furlongs in 1:10.44.
