Goldstar Rosie takes on eight rivals in her quest towards a $100,000 bonus as she heads the $26,250 Florida Sale Stakes for two-year-old pacing fillies Friday at the Isle Pompano Park.
Goldstar Rosie is the 2-1 morning line favorite for driver Dan Clements after posting a lifetime best 1:54.4 triumph in the Sunshine State Stakes Final. She is the only filly in the field still eligible for the $100,000 bonus and must win Friday to remain eligible. Goldstar Rosie starts from post four and has won five of her six lifetime starts for breeder/trainer Tom Audley of Bell, who co-owns the filly with Jamie Marra and Beth Levine.
Her main compeition will come from Bling, who starts from the rail for driver Mel Turcotte. Bling was second by a neck to Goldstar Rosie in the Sunshine State Stakes final. Other contenders include Callies Sweetheart (post 6) and Howards Pride (post 2). (Pompano Park)
