Gulfstream Park, Fl. – The Sagamore team had a busy weekend of racing in sunny Florida at Gulfstream Park, including a third place finish by newly acquired filly, Miss Temple City, out of Temple City – Glittering Tax, by Artax.
In just her third career start, Miss Temple City proved her worth in Race 8 on Saturday, January 24. Under jockey John Velasquez, Miss Temple City finished third after dueling with Quality Rocks from the inside, and eventually fell to Consumer Credit as well by 1 length. Miss Temple City battled with Quality Rocks for the lead until the final stretch where she drifted out and was unable to straighten out enough to compete for the final neck.

In his just second career start, the Lookin At Lucky- Etoufee colt by Tabasco Cat, How You, was off to a late jump in the fifth race, on January 23.
