Gypsy Robin Flies Home for Daaher
R Turn Now (Tiznow - Brady's Best by Wild Again) was scratched, and her entrymate, Gypsy Robin (Daaher - Feisty Princess by Indian Charlie), was favored. Painted Woman (Forest Wildcat - Lawanda by Pioneering) was also taking some action. Dorothy's Aurora (Simon Pure - Aurora X F by Tale of the Cat) caught my eye in the paddock, and Sassy Secretary (Suave - Office Gossip by Stormin Fever) look good on the track. Gypsy Robin broke on top, with Painted Woman after her. Stormy Donna Gail (Stormello - Silver On Gold by Artax) and Dorothy's Aurora were the next two. Gypsy Robin began to pull away in the stretch. She left the others behind with a 7 1/2 length victory. Painted Woman held second, and Dorothy's Aurora overtook Stormy Donna Gail late for third. Gypsy Robin is the first winner for Daaher, who has just five registered 2-year-olds, so 20% winners in his first crop. Watch the Replay. Read more about Gypsy Robin here.
