Best Behavior captured the $110,000 Glass Slipper S. Saturday at Gulfstream Park in front-running style while making her first start in her 19-race career beyond seven furlongs.
The one-mile Glass Slipper proved a breakthrough race for the 4-year-old daughter of Into Mischief as it was also her first lifetime stakes win.
Under jockey Edgard Zayas, Best Behavior led through fractions of 23.35 seconds, 46.08 and 1:11.05 before opening up in the stretch to win by 2 ¼ lengths in 1:37.80.
“I wanted to try a route with her. She’s by Into Mischief, and I thought she’d stretch out,” winning trainer Marty Wolfson said. “I just told (Zayas) to try to relax her up front. He rode her perfect.”
Wolfson claimed Best Behavior for $62,500 on behalf of Miller Racing out of a six-furlong win on August 29 at Gulfstream.
“I wasn’t concerned with the mile,” Wolfson continued. “All of her morning work is very relaxed. She’s not one of those speed-crazy fillies. She relaxes. She looked good today.”
“We had a plan to try to get the lead and relax as much as we can,” Zayas added. “She comes from running in a lot of sprints, and everything worked out good. She had something left in the stretch. I was confident because her trainer does such a great job running horses from sprints to routes.”

Best Behavior banked $60,500 for Saturday’s win, upping her lifetime total to $193,778. She has finished in the top three in 17 of her starts. 

Into Mischief, who has been a leading sire with his first two crops, is once again in the top five of the Third Crop Sire list, currently ranked third with progeny earnings of $4.4 million, and second in the categories of stakes winners (9), and stakes wins (13).
