BALTIMORE – Multiple graded-stakes winning homebred Mean Mary, making her 5-year-old debut, had things her own way from start to finish for a popular half-length triumph in Saturday’s $150,000 Gallorette Stakes (G3) at Pimlico Race Course.
Winning jockey Luis Saez: “It was great. She broke right there on her own. She was doing it pretty easy, and I knew I had a lot of horse. At the top of the stretch, I just let her run. She did it pretty easy. I didn’t have to use my stick for nothing.”“She’s been running with tough fillies. Today was a little easier.”
“It was a little short for her, because she loves to go a mile and a half, that’s her distance. But with the layoff, it was perfect for her. There’s a lot more horse there. I had so much horse.”
Vigilantes Way, Great Island, and Flighty Lady completed the order. Tuned was the lone scratch from the Gallorette.
Winning trainer Graham Motion: “Could not have asked for a better comeback. I was a little nervous; first time she’s run without Lasix. That’s all I said to (jockey) Luis (Saez) is to make sure she was settled. She wants to be pretty wound up. Perfect comeback. Couldn’t have asked for anything better.”
“It was perfect. I couldn’t have asked for anything else, really. I didn’t know that they would let her go that easy on the lead. My main concern was that she was settled, that she was relaxed.
This is the 4th career graded stake win for Mean Mary. The 5-year-old daughter of Scat Daddy improved her record to 10-6-2-0 and has earned $606,160 for owner Alex G. Campbell Jr.
Mean Mary returned $3.60 to win, $2.80 to place, and $2.10 to show.
