Nunofthisnunofthat became the fifth winner for CATHOLIC BOY on Sunday at Gulfstream Park with a 3 ¼ length victory.
Stepping onto the synthetic track for this race, the filly stalked the leader two wide in the first quarter of the one-mile race. She stepped up to challenge for the lead midway down the backstretch and entered a duel. She dueled with the leader around the turn before finally wrangling control at the top of the stretch.
From there, it was a fairly straightforward race for the juvenile as she pulled away to a 3 ¼ length win with the third-place finisher 6 ¾ lengths back.
The filly is conditioned by Kathleen O’Connell for Commonwealth Stable and Randy Bradshawand has finished on the board in her last two starts. The filly was bred by Frank and John Penn as one of two winners from two runners out of the two-time winning Harass.
That mare is a half-sister to stakes winner and Group 1 winner Traffic Guard and the multiple stakes placed Seanchai. This is also the family of Grade 1 winners Chief Advocate and Erins Isle.
This is the second winner for CATHOLIC BOY out of a Storm Cat granddaughter with the group also including the stakes placed Rey de Aragon.
