Rachel's Sister Breaks Her Maiden by 3
Sunday, October 25, 2020
MIAMI GARDENS - Dede McGehee’s Gladys, a 2-year-old full sister to 2009 Horse of the Year Rachel Alexandra, graduated today at Gulfstream West with an 11-1 upset victory in a one-mile maiden special weight event.
The filly by Medaglia d’Oro-Lotta Kim roared from off the pace to score a three-length victory in her second career start and first around two turns. In her Sept. 18 debut at six furlongs, Gladys encountered trouble leaving the starting gate and was never a factor. Trained by Kelsey Danner, she ran a mile over a sloppy track today in 1:38.80 under Angel Arroyo.
Gladys, who was bred by Mc Gehee’s Heaven Trees Farm, is Lotta Kim’s eighth foal of racing age. Of course, Rachel Alexandra, who captured three 2009 Gr. I's, the Preakness, Haskell and Woodward, on her way to being crowned racing’s champion, is by far the most accomplished offspring of the eight.
