Cape Hope

- Well, here it is, HRTV, and right off the bat I’m kinda surprised that they’re based today at Bay Meadows, and that I’m watching a $4000 claiming event from there when there’s three minutes until the Gaily Gaily,a 60K stakes for 3 yo fillies at Gulfstream, a pretty good betting race on the grass. The announcers like the favorite 2 horse, Paddy’s Daisy, and neither mentioned the winner Cape Hope (Cape Town), an easy winner for Bailey at 3-1. This 3 yo filly is now 3-3 on the grass and has won each by daylight for trainer Dallas Stewart, showing a powerful closing kick despite having faced some unfavorable pace scenarios. She’s out of a mare by 1991 Travers winner Corporate Report (Private Account), and she’s inbred 4x4 to Key to the Mint, and 4x5 to Raise a Native and, again, Buckpasser.
