HALLANDALE BEACH, FL—Gentry Farms’ Accomplished Girl, who captured the Grade 2 Presque Isle Masters in her most recent start, breezed a half-mile Sunday morning at Gulfstream Park in preparation for an upcoming turf stakes.

The 3-year-old daughter of Street Boss, who was timed in :50.91 on the synthetic course, defeated older rivals with a front-running score over Presque Isle Downs’ all-weather surface.

“We haven’t decided yet. She’ll run in either the mile or the sprint,” trainer Saffie Joseph Jr. said while referring to the Grade 3 Suwannee River going a mile on Dec. 30 or the five-furlong Abundantia Dec. 31. “We’ll decide this week.”

Prior to winning the Presque Isle Masters, Accomplished Girl finished second B G Warrior in a six-and-a-half-furlong allowance on turf at Kentucky Downs on Sept. 2. She previously broke her maiden going five-furlongs on turf in March and captured a conditioned $25,000 optional claiming going five-and-a-half furlongs on the synthetic course at Gulfstream in July.

Last year, Gentry Farms and Joseph purchased her for $275,000 out of the Grassroots Training and Sales consignment at the Ocala Breeders’ Sales Spring Sale.
