Island Winter Breaks Her Maiden by 11 1/4 lengths

    It took Luis Rivera three trips aboard Island Winter at Mahoning Valley before he found the hole card for the 3-year-old Bahamian Squall filly.

Three Cheers for Maiden-Breaking Bahamian Squall 3YO

    After headline writers’ nemesis Hoorayhoorayhooray finished second in three of his first four starts at Gulfstream Park, it didn’t appear as though the 3-year-old gelding by Bahamian Squall would remain in the maiden ranks much longer. He resolved that problem in yesterday’s fourth race, a $53,000 maiden special weights test at seven furlongs.

3rd Bahamian Squall Winner Lowers Gulfstream Park Record

    Bahamian Squall’s quick start in 2022 stretched into Friday, when Bahamian Rhapsody became winner No. 3 in opening week with a record-breaking run at Gulfstream Park under Javier Castellano.      The 4-year-old filly bred by Linda S.
