TORONTO, ON – Skygaze, full of run late under rider Patrick Husbands, dashed away from her rivals with ease down the stretch en route to a 3-length win in Sunday’s $100,000 Belle Mahone Stakes at Woodbine Racetrack.
There’s a reason we’re the #1 trusted source for premium racing picks & info.
Trained by Mark Casse, who won both Woodbine stakes on Saturday, Skygaze, a 4-year-old daughter of American Pharoah-Skyscape, broke alertly in the Belle Mahone and sat second to pacesetter Fate Factor, who led the way through the opening 1/4 timed in :24.79.
Skygaze continued to track Fate Factor through a 1/2 in :48.73, but by the 3/4 mark, the positions were reversed.
It was game over midway down the lane as Skygaze romped to her fifth victory from 11 career starts for owner Tracy Farmer.
Crystal Glacier, also a Casse trainee, was second, a neck ahead of No Mo Lady. Art of Almost, another Casse charge, was fourth. Final time for the race was 1:42.72.
“By the 3/4 pole, I was loaded,” said Husbands. “She was the best today.”
It was the first stakes win for Skygaze, who was bred by Normandy Farm LLC. She was third in the 2019 edition of the Mazarine (G3) and third in the Trillium (G3) on June 26, her last start before the Belle Mahone.
“Last time I rode her, she was a little bit quiet,” noted Husbands. “Today, I went alone and warmed her up. It showed in her form that she likes to be in the race and the last time I rode her, she was flat the whole way with me. Today, she showed me that she really wanted to be in the race. She showed she was the best.”
Skygaze paid $5.50 to win.
