Florida-bred filly Miss Sayely cruised to an 11-length victory Sunday at Gulfstream Park in a $50,000 maiden special weight for 2-year-old Florida-bred fillies in the fifth race.
Trained by Jose D’Angelo and ridden by Edgard Zayas, Miss Sayely ran away from her four rivals in her third start as the slight 2-1 second choice, defeating favored Llamarado in second with Parallel third.
Miss Sayely covered the seven-furlong distance in 1:24.97 on the fast track and paid $6.40 to win.
Miss Sayely is by Maximus Mischief out of Lady Hallte, by Medaglia d’Oro and was bred in Florida by Beth Bayer.
Bayer consigned her at last year’s Ocala Breeder’ Sales Winter Mixed Sale where Tempo Dulu Investment purchased her for $32,500. Blue River Bloodstock then bought her for $28,000 out of the Keeneland September Yearling Sale and pinhooked her back through the OBS April Sale where Gran Chanito Stable and Soldi Stable bought her for $50,000. She now races for Gran Chanito Stable LLC, Soldi Stable LLC and Orange Racing Stable LLC.
She has earned $40,000 in her three starts, including a third-place finish behind winner Mist last out going six-and-a-half furlongs under the same conditions on Aug. 20 at Gulfstream. Mist returned in her next start to finish second to Soldi Stable’s Welcome Back in the $100,000 Florida Thoroughbred Breeders’ and Owners’ Association Desert Vixen at Gulfstream on Sept. 9.
