Room Service Delivers 125th Stakes Winner For More Than Ready
Champion Vinery stallion More Than Ready recorded his 125th stakes winner on Sunday when 3YO filly Room Service (More Than Ready-Dream Lady, by Old Trieste) scored a last-to-first victory in the US$100,000 Gr3 Herecomesthebride Stakes (1800m) at Gulfstream Park. With Joel Rosario aboard for trainer Wayne Catalano, Room Service landed her first stakes win for Kentucky owner-breeders Gary and Mary West when defeating the Todd Pletcher trained stable-mates Candy Kitty and Seeking Her Glory by 2-lengths. Jockey Joel Rosario commented, "She wants to come from behind. I wanted to save her so that turning for home, I would have a lot of horse left. She has a long stride and will tell you when she's ready." Room Service is a full-sister to Gr3 Washington Futurity winner Major Gain and a half-sister to stakes-winner Oscar Party (Dixie Union). The bay filly will likely make her next start at Keeneland in April.
