MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (August 5, 2012) – In a performance reminiscent of her commanding 9 ¼-length front-running allowance win at Calder Casino & Race Course in mid-July, Miller Racing, LLC’s Spectacular Sky captured the first stakes race of her career on Sunday when leading throughout to take the $55,000 Barb’s Dancer, covering the 6 ½-furlong distance in 1:17.04.
