OffTrackBetting.com - The Grade 3 Herecomesthebride Stakes is on tap for this Saturday, February 27 from Gulfstream Park in Hallandale Beach, Florida. Three year old fillies will take to Gulfstream's turf track and race 1 1/16 miles searching for the winner's portion of the $150,000 purse.
Eight three year old fillies have been confirmed for the Herecomesthebride Stakes - race 6 on Gulfstream's incredible Saturday card. Post time is 2:25 PM. Let's take a look into the past performances of all eight entries for this intriguing Grade 3 stakes.
Catch a Glimpse - has three wins in four career starts for trainer Mark Casse and enters off a terrific win on the biggest stage - the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf. Before that was a good win in her stakes debut - by five lengths in the Grade 2 Natalma Stakes at Woodbine September 12, an Allowance score in August on that same track and a fifth in her debut at Saratoga. Catch a Glimpse has been on fire and will be after her third straight graded stakes score Saturday. Florent Geroux will be in the irons from the outside gate 8.
Lira - impressive Todd Pletcher trained filly has won all three career starts and hopes to keep the impressive string going Saturday. Last time out was a win in the minor $100,000 Ginger Brew Stakes here January 2 after a victory in the minor $75,000 Wait a While Stakes at Gulfstream Park West November 28 and a maiden score at first asking October 11. Lira has been dominant so far and hopes to be again Saturday with Javier Castellano in the saddle from gate 4.

Vieja Luna - has two wins and two third place finishes in eight career starts for trainer Marcos Fernandez. Last time out was a nice win in the minor OBS Championship Stakes at Ocala Training Center January 26 which followed a third in an Allowance Optional Claiming on this track December 30 and a fourteenth place finish in the Minor Wait a While Stakes in November. She has one previous graded stakes start which resulted in a fourth place finish in the Grade 1 Chandelier Stakes at Santa Anita in September. Veja Luna has been inconsistent in her career and is a tad tough to figure out ahead of this weekend. Paco Lopez gets the call from post 7.
Hold Harmless - will hit the track for just the third time for trainer Shug McGaughey having posted one win and one third place finish so far. She broke maiden last time out - on this track after a third in her debut. Hold Harmless has been decent so far but has never raced against the competition she is about to face Saturday. John Velazquez gets the call in Hold Harmless's huge step up in competition - from gate 2.
Gone Away - has just two career starts for trainer Michael Matz with one win - that coming last time out in a MSW on this track December 20. She was fourth in her debut November 7. Gone Away take a huge step up in competition Saturday from post 3 with Julien Leparoux guiding her.
Wedding Dress - has a win and a second place finish in three career starts for trainer Thomas Albertrani. Last time out was a rather unsuccessful step up in competition - a sixth in the minor Chelsey Flower Stakes at Belmont Park after a maiden score in her second career starts and a runner-up finish in her debut. Wedding Dress hopes for a bounce back performance Saturday from post 5 with Luis Saez aboard.
Andreya's Reward - has seven career starts for trainer Milton Wolfson with just two wins. She hasn't been great lately, failing to place in her last four starts overall after her win in the minor Our Dear Peggy Stakes here in October. Last time out was a ninth in the Grade 3 Sweetest Chant Stakes here January 30 which followed a seventh in the minor Ginger Brew Stakes on this track January 2, another ninth in the minor Hut Hut Stakes at Gulfstream Park West in November and a fourteenth place finish in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies. Andreya's Reward hasn't been impressive at all as of late but hopes to change all of that around from gate 6 with Jesus Rios in the reins.
Pulled the Goalie - Daniel Fella trained filly has two wins and a runner-up finish in five career starts. Last time out was an Allowance Optional Claiming score here January 10 which followed an eighth in the minor Glorious Song Stakes at Woodbine November 21 and a tenth in the Grade 2 Natalma Stakes on that track in September. She has yet to hit the board in two graded stakes tries so far and hopes to change all of that from the rail Saturday. Corey Lanerie has the mount.
