HALLANDALE BEACH, FL—Case Chambers’ Let Them Watch will be back on friendly territory for Sunday’s $100,000 Glitter Woman at Gulfstream Park, where the Florida-bred daughter of Maximus Mischief is undefeated in two starts.
The Michael Maker trainee launched her career at Gulfstream with back-to-back victories, producing a six-and-a-half-length romp in her July 7 debut and a dominating, nearly three-length decision in the $90,000 Sharp Susan at six furlongs Aug. 13.
Let Them Watch sustained her first loss when ninth behind winner Youalmosthadme in the $198,000 Myrtlewood at Keeneland in October but bounced back to win the $50,000 Sandpiper over six furlongs at Tampa Bay Downs on Dec. 2.
“She started off really well here. We had the intent of running her at Kentucky Downs,” Maker assistant Nolan Ramsey said. “We shipped up but she got sick. We missed a little time with her. I don’t think she was right and wasn’t quite ready to go [at Keeneland]. When she shipped back down here, she still wasn’t quite ready. The work before the stake at Tampa, she showed me was ready. We expected a big effort from her that day and she really showed up.”
Let Them Watch has earned $129,095 in her four races and Hector Diaz Jr., who was aboard for Let Them Watch’s three victories, has the return call in the six-furlong Glitter Woman that attracted a field of seven 3-year-old fillies.
