ALTER MOON Takes Gulfstream MSW in Second Start

Runner-up in her debut here in December, ALTER MOON kicked off the year win a front-running effort in a seven-furlong Maiden Special Weight at Gulfstream Park. The 3-year-old filly from the first crop of ALTERNATION, ALTER MOON took the lead soon after the break and stayed on top to the wire winning by 1 1/4 lengths as the favorite. The $55,000 Fasig-Tipton Kentucky October 2016 Fall Yearling Sales grad finished just 1 3/4 lengths back of the win in her debut, but was 3 1/2 lengths in front of the third-place finisher.
