3YO SHE FLED THE SCENE Battles for her Maiden Win at Gulfstream

Never off the board in her nine previous starts, SHE FLED THE SCENE proved best in the stretch to get the 1 1/2-length win on the turf at Gulfstream. Breaking from the inside post going two turns in this about 7 1/2-furlong race, the 3-year-old filly by ALTERNATION settled near the back of the pack racing down the backstretch. She began to close the gap heading into the far turn, really picked up the pace around the turn and into the stretch, drew even with the leader by the sixteenth pole and drove past that one to earn  the victory. SHE FLED THE SCENE had finished runner-up in five previous starts. Lifetime record: 10-1-5-2, $55,900. O-Betty Hamilton and Kathleen O’Connell. B-John O’Meara. T-Kathleen O’Connell.
