LOUISVILLE, KY (Saturday, May 1, 2021)– Champion sprinter Gamine went to the front and then repulsed a challenge from Sconsin to win the 35th running of the $500,000 Derby City Distaff (G1) presented by Kendall-Jackson Winery for fillies and mares to give trainer Bob Baffert a record 220th Grade I victory and to become racings newest millionaire.
This is Gamine’s 5th stakes win of her career and 2nd of her 4-year-old season. The 4-year-old daughter of Into Mischief improved her career record to 8-7-0-0 and has now earned $1,286,500 for owner Michael Lund Petersen. “I didn’t know I was that close to the record until a month ago. To do it here on this big day is very special. I’m just happy for Gamine. She got the job done. I told Johnny (Velazquez) that this was the first time she’s run before a crowd. She was looking around. So many things can go wrong but once I saw her down the backside, I knew we were in the clear.” Said winning trainer Bob Baffert.
Gamine returned to $2.40 to win, $2.20 to place, $2.10 to show.
