Unbeaten filly April Rose goes for third straight in turf sprint


April Rose will try to stay undefeated when she runs in a first-level allowance race that serves as the featured race at Gulfstream Park West on Sunday. A homebred 3-year-old filly, April Rose has started twice and will be giving away a lot of experience to her seven opponents. The five-furlong turf sprint for fillies and mares goes as race 3 on a 10-race card that begins at 12:35 p.m. Eastern. Trained by Eddie Plesa Jr., April Rose showed a lot of promise when she won her debut by 7 1/2 lengths with Paco Lopez aboard at Monmouth Park on Aug. 21. The five-furlong dash was taken off the turf, and she didn’t have any trouble handling the fast main track, as she broke on top and never looked back while winning in hand.
