Pavel’s Etoile: Late Surge Picking Off Winners For 2nd

Two year old filly for Antonio Garcia made her debut on Sunday in a Cal bred maiden special weight sprint for fillies at four and a half on the main. Off at 5/2 in a field of 8 with a lot of late action, she was void of any speed down on the inside and was a good six lengths back of the leaders at the ¼ pole. She took a lot of dirt in her face but once Gutierrez got her to the outside at the top of the lane, she started to pick off runners and made a late surge at the wire to get second, and was only beaten a neck for all of it. It was a nice debut effort and she has every right to move up off of this race. She appears to be a soon winner for a barn that does well with the babies.
