Gypsy’s Warning Did More Than Win

GypsysWarning_EatontownStks_3_300xLast Monday, Monmouth Park ran the 40th Eatontown Stakes. There were 39 runnings before Gyspy’s Warning captured the Grade III $150,000 stakes for fillies and mares. With what the 5-year-old mare had to face before the gates broke, perhaps none were done more impressively.

 

{jcomments on}The Eatontown was the daughter of Mogok’s first start in 51 weeks. Not only did she face the severe layoff, her last run was not around the block. It was at Greyville…in her homeland of South Africa. Making her first start for Herringswell stables, the Team Valor and Green Latern Stables mare looked like she had not skipped a beat through her travels.

Gypsy’s Warning arrived at the Palm Meadows Herringswell shed on March 23. From Palm Meadows, she traveled to Keeneland, from Keeneland she went to Fair Hill. After seven breezes and a handful of unfilled allowance races, she headed to Monmouth more than ready for her stateside debut in the Eatontown.

The brown mare came into the Eatontown with a gaudy record of five winners and five thirds from eleven starts. Her competition featured 2008 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf heroine Maram (whom she nosed out for the victory), and stakes winners Eye Of Tauras and Scolara along with Omega Cat. With the Eatontown added to her resume, Gypsy’s Warning has now amassed more than $230,000.
