The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


By Gulfstream Press Staff — The $200,000 Affirmed and the $200,000 Susan’s Girl, the second legs of the series for 2-year-old offspring sired by accredited stallions standing in Florida, will be featured on an 11-race program.

Carlos David-trained Lynx has been installed as the 5-2 morning-line favorite for the seven-furlong Susan’s Girl.

The daughter of Brethren overcame early bumping and a wide trip to capture the $100,000 Desert Vixen by 1 ¼ lengths Aug. 6.

The undefeated filly, who overcame traffic while graduating at first asking May 19, will clash with seven other 2-year-old fillies in the Susan’s Girl, which is programed as Race 8.

Jorge Delgado-trained Awesome Strong will headline the seven-furlong Affirmed while seeking to follow up on his dominating victory in the Dr. Fager, the six-furlong first leg of the series carded as Race 10.

Awesome Strong captured the Aug. 6 Dr. Fager by 4 ¾ lengths two months after debuting with a six-length victory. The son of Awesome Slew is the 5-1 morning-line favorite in an 11-horse field deep in talent.
