HALLANDALE BEACH, FL – Gainesway Stable and Andrew Rosen’s Pink Sands roared home strongly in the stretch to win Saturday’s $200,000 Inside Information Stakes Presented by Runhappy Matchmaker Series (G2) at Gulfstream Park.
Breaking from post 11 under Jose Ortiz at 5/1 odds, Pink Sands allowed the several sprinters signed on to find the early lead. Chief among them was Liza Star, J P’s Delight, and Blamed, who dueled through opening fractions of :22.47 and :45.34.
After purposely trailing early, Ortiz pressed the gas pedal heading into the far turn and Pink Sands soon circled much of her foes before hitting the top of the stretch in fifth. Continuing to gobble up ground in the middle of the track as she chased after new leader Spiced Perfection, Pink Sands swept right on by and drove away convincingly for the victory.
