Nacho Mama Breaks Track Record In Debut At Gulfstream Park

Nacho Mama made her debut a memorable one Sunday at Gulfstream Park, setting a track record on her way to a two-length victory in the fourth race, a $65,000 maiden special weight allowance.

The juvenile daughter of Brethren ran 4 ½ furlongs in 50.86 seconds, eclipsing the mark set by Awesome Banner (51.07) June 5, 2015.

Arindel Farm’s homebred filly stalked the early pace set by Eddie Plesa Jr.-trained Abuela’s Love, a first time starter by Cairo Prince who set sharp half-mile fractions of 21 and 44. Ridden by Jeffrey Sanchez, Nacho Mama made a three-wide move on the turn into the homestretch and kicked in through the lane to win going away over runner-up Abuela’s Love.

Stanley Gold trains Nacho Mama and also trained Awesome Banner, who went on to become a multiple graded-stakes winner.

“She breezed good and galloped very good,” Sanchez said. “She broke good. I didn’t want to use her too early. When I asked her to go, she finished very, very strong.”

One race after Nacho Mama set the track record, her 3-year-old multiple staked-placed full sister Awesome Mass won a hard-fought victory by a nose in a $47,000 second-level optional claiming allowance at 6 ½-furlongs. The Gold-trained Arindel homebred was ridden by Sanchez.

Nacho Mama is eligible for the FTBOA Florida Sire Stakes series. The $200,000 Susan’s Girl for fillies, as well as the $200,000 Affirmed, is scheduled for Sept. 1.
