Lovely Syn, ridden for the first time by Javier Castellano, wins her fourth consecutive start in the Bouwerie for New York-bred 3-year-old fillies.

ELMONT, N.Y. - In what amounted to little more than a paid public workout, Lovely Syn rolled to a 10 1/4 length victory in Saturday’s $125,000 Bouwerie Stakes for New York-bred 3-year-old fillies at Belmont Park.

 The win was the fourth in as many starts for Lovely Syn, a daughter of Freud owned and bred by Joemar Racing Stables and trained by Dominick Schettino.

 Breaking from the outside in a five-horse field, Lovely Syn roared out of the gate and quickly opened up two lengths while running a quarter in 21.95 seconds. From there, Lovely Syn kept on widening her advantage through a half in 44.34 and six furlongs in 1:08.15. Javier Castellano basically took Lovely Syn in hand for the final furlong and she covered the seven furlongs in 1:21.58. That was the second-fastest of 33 Bouweries run at seven furlongs. Northern Netti ran 1:21.24 winning it in 2008.

 “I’ve never seen a horse like that so quick out of the gate,” said Castellano, who was riding Lovely Syn for the first time. “She’s so laid back before the race in the post parade it’s amazing.  I believe the track is so fast today because her ears are going back and forth and she went 22 and 44.”

Kelli Got Frosty got second, by a neck over Kitty Panda. Carameaway and True Fortune completed the order of finish.
