Miss Blakely rides rail to win first stakes


Miss Blakely, who ran for a claiming tag in the first two starts of her career, became a stakes winner when she took advantage of an opening along the inside to capture the $50,000 Boynton Beach for 3-year-old fillies at Gulfstream Park.

Ridden by Jeffrey Sanchez for trainer Joe Orseno, Miss Blakely ($25) was second behind pacesetter Oilgonewile coming into the stretch of the one-mile turf race. Miss Blakely, a daughter of Smart Strike, surged up the hedge to pull clear by 2 1/2 lengths while completing the distance in 1:34.94.

Seminole Lass came from far back to get second at 25-1 with Oilgonewile fading to third at 7-2.

My Magic Moment, the 2-1 favorite making her first start since October, never threatened and finished sixth of nine.
