ALTER MOON Earns First Blacktype at Gulfstream

A Maiden Special Weight winner here in her seasonal debut (pictured), ALTER MOON finished runner-up in the Game Face S. at Gulfstream Park to give ALTERNATION his third Blacktype runner in 2018. The 3-year-old filly from the first crop of her sire broke a bit slow to race between horses down the backstretch. She moved up to the second spot around the turn and continued to put pressure on the frontrunner to the wire. ALTER MOON finished less than two lengths off the win but was a whopping nearly 15 lengths in front of the third-place finisher. Runner-up in her debut at 2, she was a $55,000 Fasig-Tipton Kentucky October 2016 Fall Yearling Sales purchase. Lifetime record: 5-1-2-0, $58,220. O-JAL Racing. B-C. Hunter Hager and E. Claire Hager.
