Gam’s Mission broke from post 7 under Adam Beschizza at 6/1 odds and sat back early as Postnup dueled with the 7/5 favorite Spanish Loveaffair through opening fractions of :24.55, :49.56, and 1:14.27.

Tipped out in the far turn to commence a rally, Gam’s Mission straightened for home with the bettors’ choice in her sights.

Hustling three-wide around Spanish Loveaffair and Flown, Gam’s Mission edged her way past in the late stages before crossing 3/4 of a length the best.

The Cherie DeVaux trainee stopped the clock at 1:51.02 for the 1 1/8-mile firm turf route.

“I was pretty confident with her stepping up to this distance,” Beschizza said. “She seems to have a very nice kick. Since she broke her maiden, she’s really started to put things together. We didn’t go quite fast, but the pace was a little testing.”

Spanish Loveaffair held off the early stalker Flown for second by a head, with a late-charging Oyster Box 3/4 of a length behind them in fourth.

Barista, Munnyfor Ro, Line Dancing, and Postnup completed the order of finish. Saranya scratched.

Gam’s Mission returned $14.20 to win, $5.80 to place, and $3.80 to show. Spanish Loveaffair brought back $3.40 to place and $2.40 to show. Flown paid $3 to show.
