My Brown Eyed Guy, with Antonio Gallardo up, wins the $125,000 Affirmed division of the Stallion Stakes.

The Juvenile Showcase at Calder Race Course on Saturday turned into the Antonio Gallardo Showcase as the jockey won four of the six stakes on the card, including both divisions of the Florida Stallion Stakes with Kathleen O’Connell trainees My Brown Eyed Guy and Scandalous Act.

The stakes on Saturday’s program were all for 2-year-olds, and they were worth a cumulative $550,000.

Gallardo picked up the mounts in the Stallion Stakes races after jockey Eduardo Nunez was thrown from his mount in an earlier race, the $75,000 Catcharisingstar.

In the $125,000 Affirmed division of the Stallion Stakes, My Brown Eyed Guy ($4) led throughout for a 2 1/4-length win over Best Plan Yet. He covered seven furlongs on a fast track in 1:24.87. My Brown Eyed Guy has now won two of the three legs of the Florida Stallion Stakes series, with the final race, the $300,000 In Reality, at Calder on Oct. 12. 

Gilbert Campbell bred and owns My Brown Eyed Guy, a son of With Distinction who won his third straight race from four career starts in the Affirmed.

Campbell also is the breeder and owner of Scandalous Act ($2.60), who blitzed her rivals in the $125,000 Susan’s Girl division of the Stallion Stakes, winning by 8 3/4 lengths. She covered seven furlongs in 1:25.06.

Scandalous Act also has won the first two legs of the Stallion Stakes, having accounted for the $75,000 Desert Vixen in July. The final leg, the $300,000 My Dear Girl, is Oct. 12. Scandalous Act is a daughter of the Mr. Prospector stallion Act of Duty.

The Gallardo, O’Connell, and Campbell team also struck in the Catcharisingstar, when Secret Kitten ($10.60) pulled away for a 4 1/2-length win over Ya Esta. She covered five furlongs on a turf course rated good in 57.87 seconds. Secret Kitten is a Campbell homebred and a Florida-bred daughter of Discreet Cat.

Gallardo’s other winner came with Flat Out Charming ($17.40), who put in a determined stretch bid to catch Light Bringer for a nose win in the $75,000 Lindsay Frolic. She covered the one-mile for fillies in 1:42.89. Rodolfo Garcia trains for breeder-owner Tanourin Stable. Flat Out Charming is a daughter of Flatter and she was bred in Florida.

Double for Gelfenstein Farm, Sano

Brothersofthetime ($3.80) held for a nose win over East Hall in the $75,000 Seacliff, a one-mile race that went with a field of six after the scratches of Burning, Best Plan Yet and Wild Z Z Z Z. It was his third win in four career starts, and his first out at two turns.

Brothersofthetime stalked the pace and fought in the stretch, covering the distance in 1:42.01. Fernando Jara was aboard for Gelfenstein Farm and trainer Antonio Sano. Brothersofthetime is a son of Wood Memorial winner Bob and John and out of the three-time stakes-winning mare Hostility, who earned $401,829. He was bred in Florida by Marion Montanari.

In the finale, Bon Accord ($94.80) gave Gelfenstein Farm and Sano their second stakes win on the card, when he rolled to a  1 3/4-length win in the $75,000 Calder Dash. He covered five furlongs on good turf in 58.12. Jesus Rios was aboard. Bon Accord is a son of Showing Up and was bred in Kentucky by Mark Secrest.
