Winstar Maidens Romp at Gulfstream, Sunland
Saturday, April 02, 2011
A pair of WinStar-owned 3-year-old fillies strutted their stuff on April 2, rolling to easy victories at Gulfstream Park and Sunland Park.

At Gulfstream, Savvy Supreme was on top for the entire six furlongs, drawing off in the stretch to win by 5 1/4-lengths in a very lively 1:09.75. (watch video)The bay filly, by WinStar's champion stallion Distorted Humor, is a full sister to Commentator, two-time winner of the Grade 1 Whitney H. and six other stakes while earning over $2 million.

Savvy Supreme, who was second in her debut on Feb. 20 at Gulfstream, has now won $33,525. WinStar purchased her for $520,000 at the Keeneland Nov. 2008 breeding stock sale. She is trained by Todd Pletcher.

At Sunland Park, Mythical Bride was midpack for the first half of her one mile race, then took off to draw off from the field and cruise home by 10 3/4-lengths while geared down late. (watch video) Trained by Shannon Ritter, Mythical Bride is 1-1-0 in three starts, earning $20,560.

WinStar also bred Mythical Bride, who is the first foal out of Flaming Heart, who earned $245,961 and won the Strolling Belle S. and Hill 'n' Dale S. WinStar purchased Flaming Heart in foal to Mythical Bride at the Keeneland 2007 November breeding stock sale.
