Heart Stealer much the best in Paseana S.
Saturday, July 05, 2014
Heart Stealer out-classed her competition in Gulfstream Park's $75,000 Paseana S. on Saturday, as the multiple graded stakes-winning daughter of Speightstown rallied to to take the 6 1/2-furlong affair by 2 1/4-lengths.

Speightstown's runners have now eclipsed the $4.6 million mark this year, ranking second on the 2014 General Sire list.

After entering Heart Stealer in both the $75,000 Housebuster, as well the Paseana, on Saturday’s Gulfstream card, trainer Marty Wolfson decided on the Paseana, which was restricted to fillies and mares, instead of facing the boys in the Housebuster.

Heart Stealer raced along comfortably in fourth for the first half-mile, then, under only mild encouragement from jockey Edgard Zayas, overtook the frontrunners to clear off to a 2 ¼-length victory.

“I just needed a race for her before I go to Saratoga,” said Wolfson, whose primary goal for Heart Stealer is the $500,000 Ballerina S. (G1) at Saratoga on Aug.23. “I felt this was the easier race.”

“(Edgard) really only let her run the last eighth of a mile,” said Wolfson, who trains the filly for Peachtree Stable. “She’s been training beautifully.”

Heart Stealer, who ran 6 ½ furlongs in 1:16.61, is now 5-2-1 in 13 starts, bankrolling $312,285 for John Fort's Peachtree Stable. Her previous stakes wins came in the Inside Information S. (G2) and Sugar Swirl S. (G3).

Fort was the winning bidder for Heart Stealer at the 2011 Fasig-Tipton Saratoga Select Yearling sale, where he went to $300,000 to secure the Kentucky bred out of the two-time stakes-winning Distorted Humor mare Saratoga Humor.
