Musicmansandy wins at first asking at Delaware Park

After issues loading at the starting gate, Musicmansandy  ran smoothly to cross the wire first in a five-furlong maiden weight special race June 22 at Delaware Park, breaking her maiden on first asking and handing Accelerate   his first winner.

Trained by Rudy Rodriguez, the 2-year-old filly left the gate in fourth, moving into leading position by the three-sixteenths pole. Under Jose Gomez, the filly dominated throughout the race until finishing 4 1/2 lengths in front of runner-up Fancee Grace C  in a final time of :58.96 for Michael Dubb and Morris Bailey. 

The filly was first sold for $160,000 at the 2021 Keeneland September Yearling Sale. She went to auction again at the 2022 Ocala Breeders' Sales Spring Sale of 2-Year-Olds in Training, selling for $175,000 to H R Bloodstock and consigned by Top Line Sales. 

Musicmansandy is the first runner of Accelerate's first crop of 2-year-olds to find success on the track.
