2023 Herecomesthebride Stakes & More Gulfstream Races Recap

The Very One Stakes

Grade 3 – Purse $150,000 – 1 3/8 miles – Turf – 4-Year-Olds and Up for Fillies and Mares

MyLady shows a devastating burst of speed to go from last to first and make it a 1-2 for trainer Chad Brown in the Grade 3 Very One Stakes at Gulfstream Park.

Flying Fortress and Libretto moved to the front early, and as they entered the home stretch for the first time they had moved five lengths clear of the field.

Meanwhile, the eventual winner MYLADY who jumped well was reined back to the last spot for her customary late close.

The pace was slow with an opening quarter in 24.40 secs.

As they reached the five-furlong marker it was still the 35/1 shot Flying Fortress in front, but the field was starting to concertina and as they reached the end of the back stretch it was here that Luis Saez asked MyLady to pick up, and she circled the whole field to go from last to first as they reached the top of the stretch.

She widened by two lengths but still had to battle, as barn buddies Higher Truth and Virginia Joy started to close.

She held well to win by half a length from Higher Truth with the unlucky Transient closing late and fast for the third spot.

The Canadian Turf Stakes

Grade 3 – Purse $150,000 – 1 1/16 miles – Turf – 4-Year-Olds and Up

Emmanuel overcomes traffic to swoop late and fast and go back to back in graded stakes company, making it two Grade 3 wins on the bounce.

As they broke from the gates, we had a four-way go for the lead and as they went into the clubhouse turn, it was the longshot Safe Conduct who led the way, closely followed by Steady On and English Bee who had jumped well from post position one.

The chalk and eventual winner EMMANUEL had also broken sharply but was reined back into the fourth spot to stalk the pace.

As they went down the backstretch, it was here that Souper Dormy made a move outside the favorite as the jockey was trying fiercely to hold on to his mount, with Souper Dormy intent on going faster.

As they reached the end of the backstretch, the top eight were covered by just 5 lengths, with the chalk traveling smoothly and waiting to pounce.

As they hit the top of the stretch, Javier Castellano was all dressed up with nowhere to go on Emmanuel.

This allowed Steady On to shake loose and widen by two lengths with just a sixteenth to go, but Emmanuel had now hit top gear and he mowed down Steady On with 50 yards to go.

It was close at the wire but Emmanuel prevailed by half a length, with the unlucky Fort Washington, who was nearly last at the top of the stretch closing late and fast through traffic to claim the third spot, and he is one to watch for next time.

The Herecomesthebride Stakes

Grade 3 – Purse $200,000 – 1 mile – Turf – 3-Year-Old Fillies

Heavy favorite Cairo Consort can only finish third as the improving Danse Macabre hangs tough to take down the 2023 Herecomesthebride Stakes.
As they went into the clubhouse turn, there was no real pace and from a wide gate Moonage Daydream had tugged her way to the lead with Blind Spot on the inside of the eventual winner DANSE MACABRE.

Moving out onto the backstretch and there were traffic problems as Papilio was tightened and had to slam on the brakes causing SweetLou’sGotAces to back off.

The pace was still slow up front as the opening quarter went in 24.84 secs, and as they ambled down the backstretch it was still Moonage Daydream controlling the tempo.

As they reached the end of the back stretch and onto the far turn, it was here the chalk Cairo Consort started a move in the three paths but she still had plenty of traffic in front.

Moving to the top of the stretch and was here that Danse Macabre took over from long-time leader Moonage Daydream, but she was soon joined by Papilio who looked like sailing on by, but this one started to hang right and Danse Macabre hung tough for the win with Cairo Consort making late ground to take third.

The fourth horse was Revalita, who closed from a long way back to be beaten just over a length and is one to watch for next time.

The Honey Fox Stakes

Grade 3 – Purse $150,000 – 1 mile – Turf – 4-Year-Olds and Up for Fillies and Mares

Faith In Humanity goes gate to wire to take out the Grade 3 Honey Fox Stakes and hangs on late from the luckless White Frost.

The early battle for the speed was between the inside runner Faith In Humanity and the wide starting longshot, the 80/1 chance Touch Of Class, and it was the inside runner and eventual winner FAITH IN HUMANITY who used her inside rail position to lead out of the clubhouse turn and onto the backstretch.

The leader was setting a strong pace with an opening quarter going in 23.4 secs. Meanwhile, the more fancied runners White Frost and Speak Of The Devil were held up near the back of the pack.

Down the backstretch and Faith In Humanity had a length lead from Touch Of Class, with Sweet Enough now coming under a drive in the third spot, and she was circled by the improving Sweet Dani Girl.

As they hit the top of the stretch and settle down for the drive to the wire, Joel Rosario asked the leader for more and she soon widened by a couple of lengths.

Meanwhile, the well-fancied White Frost, who had encountered all sorts of traffic problems, pitched out wide to the five-lane to make her bid, and she closed very fast late on to just be denied and can be classed a very unlucky loser.

The longshot Princess Theorem ran home third and she looks one for a stretch-out in distance next time.
