17 Graded Stakes Winners in Florida Sunshine Millions


Seventeen Graded Stakes Winners in Florida Sunshine Millions

A quick look at the Saturday overnight of the six stakes races worth $1.3 million to be run on the Florida Sunshine Millions program at Gulfstream Park would not easily identify the event as restricted to Florida-bred runners because more than a third - 17 of the 48 horses entered - , are ‘open’ Graded stakes winners of a total of 30 Graded races.

In addition to 2010 Eclipse champion Awesome Feather and 2011 Eclipse champion Musical Romance, two others (Teaks North and Hooh Why) are Grade 1 winners while four more have won one or more Grade 2 events. There are at least two Graded stakes winners in each of the six races, topped by five of the nine entered in the Filly & Mare Turf.
