Enola Gray pulls away to win the seven-furlong Fleet Treat Stakes by 7 3/4 lengths.

DEL MAR, Calif. – Enola Gray exerted minimal effort to remain unbeaten after three starts with a convincing win in $147,000 Friday’s Fleet Treat Stakes for California-bred 3-year-old fillies at Del Mar.

Enola Gray has won her races by a combined 26 1/4 lengths. She won the seven-furlong Fleet Treat Stakes by 7 3/4 lengths under a confident ride from jockey Tyler Baze.

Enola Gray ($2.20) disputed the early pace with Fantasy of Luck before taking command on the turn. She pulled away quickly and won without being urged over Allsquare.

Phil D’Amato trains Enola Gray and Allsquare. Enola Gray, who is owned by breeder Nick Alexander, was timed in 1:21.24.

“It was what I hoped for,” Alexander said. “I figured there was no speed horses that could stay with her. I thought Tyler Baze rode a perfect race.”
