Not seen since taking the GI American Oaks last December, Anisette (GB) (Awtaad {Ire}) kicked off her 4-year-old campaign on a winning note, taking the GI Gamely on Santa Anita’s Memorial Day card Monday. Allowed to settle well off the pace as Ruby Nell (Bolt d’Oro) opened up on the field through a :24.09 opening quarter, Anisette continued to bide her time through a :47.57 half mile. With the field closing in on the weakening frontrunner approaching the final turn, Anisette swept into the stretch four wide, powered to the front midstretch and proved best, scoring by a half-length over Olivia Maralda (Ire) (Kodiac GB}). Forever After All (Connect) was up for third. Final time for nine-furlong turf test was 1:46.90. Lifetime Record: 10-6-3-0, $477,800. O-Eclipse Thoroughbred Partners; B-Morera Partnership; T-Leonard Powell.


#6 Anisette won the $300,000 Gamely Stakes (G1) at Santa Anita under @umbyrispoli for @Leopowellracing. This is her third Grade 1 victory.

Olivia Maralda second, Forever After All third.
