From the Gulfstream Park Media Team:
Gainesway Stable and Andrew Rosen’s Pink Sands rallied from last to score her first graded-stakes victory in Saturday’s $100,000 Rampart (G3) at Gulfstream Park.
“She kind of went through her conditions here last year so we felt like when we brought her back down here that she does like the track and she’s had a little bit of an opportunity. I took her to Churchill; it was a bad move on my part. She ran bad, we gave her a little time and brought her back at the end of October and the last race was a decent race. We had this in our mind after that, and it worked out well. She likes it here, it was a mile and [we were] trying to win a graded-stake with her.”
“We’ll have to sit down and look at what’s next. There’s the [G2, $200,000] Inside Information [Jan. 25] and we’d probably get some gas going seven-eighths so it’s possible but we’ll just have to wait and see.”
