Global Campaign wins an allowance race at Gulfstream Park

There were several races featuring 3-year-olds Saturday at Gulfstream Park, but none were more impressive than Sagamore Farm LLC's and WinStar Farm LLC's Global Campaign, who drew off from Grade 1-placed Standard Deviation down the stretch to win going 1 1/16 miles in 1:44.29

Trained by Stanley Hough and ridden by leading jockey Luis Saez, Global Campaign's victory Saturday's followed an equally impressive winning debut here Jan. 5 at seven furlongs.

“He's a talented horse,” Hough said. “Obviously, you don't know the first time two turns for a lot of them, but, gosh, he handled it well.”

So what's next for the undefeated son of Curlin who brought $250,000 at auction? “We don't know,” Hough said. “Hopefully, it will be one of the many races coming up. The Fountain of Youth (G2) is a possibility.”

In other races featuring 3-year-olds, Mathis Stable LLC's 3-year-old colt Last Judgement, a $300,000 son of Congrats, broke his maiden at second asking. After being a bit difficult to load, the Todd Pletcher-trained colt won by a length going six furlongs in 1:10.13 under jockey John Velazquez.

Pletcher and Velazquez were back in the winner's circle some 60 minutes later with Cheyenne Stables LLC's Angelia. The daughter of Curlin, stretching out around two turns for the first time, won at 1 1/16 miles in 1:46.95. It was Angelia's fourth start.

Juddmonte Farm's homebred Clause ran down Can't Buy Me Love down the stretch to break her maiden at first asking. Trained by Chad Brown and ridden by Irad Ortiz Jr., Clause, a 3-year-old daughter of Speightstown, covered a firm mile course in 1:34.86.
