The Sally Sue Schu trained Natural Wonder overcoming several delays, a Thunderstorm and then a gate malfunction pushing post time back almost 45 minutes won this years’ edition of the Satin and Lace Stakes for Fillies and Mares 3 & up which was run Father’s Day, Sunday, June 18.
The Summer Bird mare by Gold Pattern registered her 1st Stakes win by making an explosive stretch running move in which she passed 10 of her rivals in the last 1/8 of a mile.
Piloted by Luis Garcia, Natural Wonder finally caught up to the pacesetter Pretty Perfection in the last couple of strides. Running a Snappy time of 102.85 for the 5 ½ Furlongs. Miss Gossip Fire (IRE) overcame her bad post and got up for the Show.
The win assured Natural Wonder of a starting spot in the meets premier race, the Grade II Masters Stakes to be run on Monday, September 18.
