Laurie Plesa and Glassman Racing LLC’s Time Passage wired the field in the $60,000 Soaring Softly overnight handicap Saturday for her second consecutive victory against five other fillies and mares going a mile-and-seventy yards on the synthetic course at Gulfstream Park.
The Eddie Plesa-trained son of Bridlewood Farm stallion Tunwoo carried jockey Edgard Zayas to a length-and-a-half lead ahead of Ocean Safari and Double Cosmo Girl in a joint second through a leisurely quarter mile in :24.13. Time Passage quickened the pace for a :47.30 half mile while extending her margin to two lengths entering the far turn where Ocean Safari and Double Cosmo Girl could not keep pace. Florida-bred Chick’s Shadow moved into second but failed not muster a challenge as Time Passage galloped to the finish and win by two-and-a-quarter lengths in 1:40.07.
Chick’s Shadow was second, seven lengths clear of To Thyself B True in third. Double Cosmo Girl, Ocean Safari and Florida-bred Race Day Speed completed the order of finish. Rastani was scratched.
Time Passage paid $4 to win as the even-money favorite.
