Going Global Gains Fifth Straight Score In Honeymoon

ARCADIA, CA – Trainer Phil D’Amato’s Going Global gained her fifth straight score with a dominating 4 3/4-length score over her fellow 3-year-old fillies in Saturday’s $100,000 Honeymoon Stakes (G3) at Santa Anita Park.

With regular rider Flavien Prat in the irons, Going Global made good on her 4/5 favoritism in the field of seven with an ultra-impressive inside move in the far turn that she parlayed into a two-wide stretch run that swept her right past early leader Pizzazz.

Going Global was never asked for her best before completing the firm 1 1/8-mile turf route in 1:46.37.

Golden edged Midnight Diva for second by a 1/2-length. Quattroelle, Pizzazz, Madone, and Majestic Steps completed the order of finish.

Going Global’s win followed similar local stakes triumphs in the Providencia (G3), the China Doll, and the Sweetest Life (G3). The Irish-bred daughter of Mehmas improved her record to 8-5-0-0 with $248,792 earned.

“I’ve had a lot of good Grade 1-winning mares, but this early on in their career, I’d say she’s definitely the best 3-year-old filly,” D’Amato said. “I just think that she’s a filly that is just blossoming before our eyes right now. Each performance I thought was better than the next, and this one I thought was many lengths better than the last.”

Going Global returned $3.60 to win, $2.40 to place, and $2.20 to show. Golden brought back $4.60 to place and $3.60 to show. Midnight Diva paid $7.20 to show.
