2012 G2 SW GYPSY ROBIN Wins Third Consecutive Stakes

A four-length, front-running winner of Keeneland’s Grade 2 Beaumont S., in her seasonal debut, this 3-year-old filly by DAAHER won her third consecutive stakes by taking the six-furlong $100,000 Inaugural S. on the opening day of Presque Isle Downs’ summer meeting. Breaking sharply from post five to quickly grab the lead, GYPSY ROBIN was briefly confronted by a challenger entering the stretch, but accelerated and drew off in the final furlong to win by four lengths under a strong hand ride on the all-weather surface. Owned by the partnership of King 9 Stables (Wes Welker), Gatewood Bell, Bret Jones and Wesley Ward, and trained by Wesley Ward, she closed out her 2-year-old campaign with a win in the Sorority S.
