3YO GIRONA Edges Away in Los Alamitos Allowance
Making her second start after a six-month lay-off and fourth lifetime, GIRONA seized the lead in mid-stretch and prevailed by 1 1/2 lengths in this 5 ½-furlong allowance on the closing day of the Los Alamitos Winter Meet. The 3-year-old filly from the second crop of ALTERNATION moved up to challenge for the lead on the turn, eventually took the lead after an extended duel and pulled away late for the victory. GIRONA was a 5 1/4-length maiden winner at Santa Anita in her second start. Lifetime record: 4-2-0-1, $40,551. O-Wongs Stable. B-Jack Huckabay. T-Paul Aguirre.
