Wild About Sonny Captures Gulfstream Feature
HALLANDALE BEACH, FL – Wild About Sonny returned from a seven-month layoff to score a half-length victory in Thursday’s featured eighth race at Gulfstream Park.
The 2-1 favorite, who previously had won her debut to racing at Monmouth Park on June 19, stalked the early pace set by Because I Like It before edging away to victory in the $42,700 allowance race. Ridden by Elvis Trujillo, Wild About Sonny ran six furlongs in 1:11 4/5 to prevail over eight sophomore fillies.
Trained by Kelly Breen, Wild About Sonny ($6.40) earned $24,300 for her second victory in as many starts for owners George and Lori Hall.
