Gamine rolls by 10 in Great Lady M Stakes (G2)
Tuesday, July 6, 2021
Gamine dominated her competition in Monday's $200,000 Great Lady M Stakes (G2) at Los Alamitos, drawing off in the long stretch to win by 10 lengths in a near track-record performance.

The Bob Baffert trainee owned by Michael Petersen has won eight of her nine starts and earned $1,406,500.

Gamine showed her customary speed from the gate, with Edgeway in close pursuit through a quarter-mile in :21.61. Gamine began to pull away at the half-mile mark and then left the field far behind in the stretch to finish the 6 1/2-furlongs in 1:14.98, a half-second from the track record.

“That's what great horses do,” said Baffert after the win. “When she runs I get nervous and I'm more relieved after the race. She looked great and I'm glad she came through.”

Gamine, who was last year's Champion Female Sprinter, is undefeated this year, with wins in the Derby City Distaff (G1) and Las Flores S. (G3) prior to Monday's win.

Baffert is considering longer distances for Gamine's next race. “She might be able to stretch out. She's getting older and more mature. That's one option I've been thinking about, but I don't know what we'll do next. I want to see how she comes out of this and I'll let her tell me.”
