Lovely Syn ran her record to 4 for 4 with a 10 1/4-length victory in Saturday’s Bouwerie Stakes.

ELMONT, N.Y. - When it comes to his undefeated New York-bred filly Lovely Syn, owner Michael Parisi said he’s just “enjoying the ride.”

Lovely Syn made it 4 for 4 with a devastatingly easy 10 1/4-length victory in Saturday’s Bouwerie Stakes for 3-year-old New York-bred fillies.

Despite being eased late by jockey Javier Castellano, Lovely Syn ran seven furlongs in 1:21.58, a full second faster than the 4-year-old filly Clear Pasaj did winning the Dancin Renee and .06 of a second faster than Amberjack ran winning the Mike Lee for 3-year-old males, both on the same card.

Lovely Syn, a homebred daughter of Freud, has won all four of her races by a combined 28 3/4 lengths.

Parisi, who is more involved in the Standardbred game, said Lovely Syn has been “such a surprise” and he has no idea what might be next.

“I’m not sure she can compete on the graded level,” he said. “She hasn’t beat anything, but she hasn’t run against anything either. I’m just enjoying the ride with her. I never had a horse at this level.”

Trainer Dominick Schettino said Lovely Syn came out of her race in good shape, though he hasn’t thought of where to run the filly next. Schettino has talked about stretching her out in distance. A race like the Grade 2, $300,000 Delaware Oaks at 1 1/16 miles on July 13 may fit timing-wise. If she is kept sprinting, a race like the Grade 3, $150,000 Victory Ride at six furlongs at Belmont on June 29 also could be an option.

Unreal talent, wish the connections the best of luck. She reminds me of a filly in NY when I was a kid named Wisla. Although this filly is on track to be better, sure looks like a filly who could be a strong candidate for the Test at Saratoga.
