Jockey Javier Castellano and trainer Peter Walder teamed to win their second Claiming Crown event for Loooch Racing on Saturday at Gulfstream Park when Moonshine Promise coasted to an easy score in the $110,000 Glass Slipper.

Prominent from the start of the one-turn-mile race, Moonshine Promise disposed of early leader My House leaving the turn and never was threatened thereafter, prevailing by five lengths under mild urging. My House was able to save second by a neck over the 80-1 shot Roll It Gal, with Aix En Provence, the 5-2 favorite in a field of 12 fillies and mares, checking home fourth.

Moonshine Promise, now a winner in 14 of 52 career starts, returned $12.20 after finishing in 1:37.67 over a wet and sealed track.

Moonshine Promise, like Loooch’s Runs With Bulls in the earlier Iron Horse, was making her first start for Walder since shipping south from Thistledown in Cleveland, where the 6-year-old mare was trained by Tony Rini.

The $2 exacta (7-5) paid $96, the $1 trifecta (7-5-8) returned $1,396.50, and the 10-cent superfecta (7-5-8-6) was worth $723.18.

That was easy money. Where's Ron Nicoletti? I like his commentary.
