HALLANDALE BEACH, Fla. - San Dare proved her victory at 11-1 in the Grade 3 Honey Fox Handicap earlier in the meet was no fluke when she exploded from near the back of the pack for an easy 2 1/4-length victory over Tweedside in Saturday's The Very One Handicap at Gulfstream Park.

Despite winning the Honey Fox, San Dare was dismissed at 6-1 in the $100,000 The Very One and paid $14. She covered 1 3/8 miles in 2:13.76 over a firm course under jockey Mark Guidry.

San Dare, a 5-year-old daughter of Dare and Go, is trained by Rick Hiles for owner David Mounts.

"Our plans were for her to sit back and take it easy and make one late run," said Hiles. "The pace was a little faster than I'd expected. She got to the lead quicker than I thought she would and actually won a lot easier than she did last time."

San Dare dropped back to last after the opening mile of The Very One but then accelerated suddenly to pass half the field around the final turn. She swung five wide entering the stretch to continue her bid, easily ran past the leaders at midstretch, and drew off with complete authority.

Tweedside prompted the pace while racing three wide and took command leaving the quarter pole. Hi Tech Honeycomb rallied to finish third.

Uriah, the 5-2 favorite, made up ground through the stretch to finish a nonthreatening fourth. Moon Queen, an easy winner of the 2002 The Very One, was trapped behind the early leaders, remained prominent to the stretch, then weakened and beat only one horse in the field of 12 fillies and mares.

Hiles said San Dare would make her next start in the Grade 2 Orchid Handicap at Gulfstream on March 23.
