Temple City’s Ocean Safari rallies to take Gulfstream Park’s Honey Ryder S.
May 8, 2022
Ocean Safari got her first career stakes win Saturday with a half-length victory in the $75,000 Honey Ryder S. over the Gulfstream Park turf course.
The dark bay 3-year-old daughter of Temple City was third for most of the “about” one-mile trip. It wasn’t until the top of the stretch that she swung three-wide to take aim at the leaders. Omixochitl looked to have the win sewed up with a furlong to go, but Ocean Safari would not be denied, surging to the lead in the final 70 yards to secure the win.
Ocean Safari was bred by Cricket Hooper and Athen Woods LLC and is out of the stakes winner Media Access, and has a pair of stakes winning siblings.
Owned by Soldi Stable LLC and Ohana Racing LLC, Ocean Safari has a record of 2-2-1 from six starts, earning $106,190. She is the sixth stakes winner this year for Temple City.
