A rested Aubby K storms to win in Inside Information Stakes

 

Special to The Miami Herald

Aubby K took the lead coming around the turn and then rolled to a three-length victory over Spectcular Sky in the $150,000 Inside Information Stakes (Grade 2) on Sunday at Gulfstream Park.

Emma’s Encore finished third in the seven-furlong dirt stakes for fillies and mares 4 years old and up.

The win was the first in a stakes for Aubby K, a 4-year-old trained by Ralph Nicks, and was her third win in seven career starts.

This was her first race since Aug. 25, when she finished eighth in a 10-horse field in the seven-furlong Test Stakes (Grade 1) at Saratoga.

Nicks said Aubby K was healthy after the Test, but she needed a break. He decided to keep her in races of seven furlongs or less and said he had been targeting the Inside Information for several months.

Aubby K, at 6-1, was the second betting choice in a 10-horse field.

She was in second place through the half-mile in 45.57 seconds, one length behind and just outside Spectacular Sky.

She took the lead under Edgar Prado and pulled away to win in 1:23.85, the slowest time in the last 10 runnings of the Inside Information.

The win was the third in seven career starts for Aubby K, who is owned by James Spence of Terre Haute, Ind.

Golden Mystery, the 6-5 favorite, never challenged the leaders and finished 10th, 14 1/2 lengths behind Aubby K.

Marty Wolfson trains Golden Mystery and Spectacular Sky, as well as Nakano and Starship Truffles, who finished fourth and ninth, respectively.

• On Saturday, Gulfstream will have the $150,000 Pan American Stakes.(Grade 3) at 1 ½ miles on turf for 4-year-olds and up.
