HALLANDALE BEACH--Graham Motion saddled Alex G. Campbell, Jr.'s homebred Mean Mary to win the $200,000, 1 1/4 mile La Prevoyante Stakes on the turf at Gulfstream Park on Jan. 25.
Leading every step of the way, Mean Mary, ridden by Luis Saez, set slow fractions of 25.48, 51.60, 1:17.34 and 1:42.59 and had plenty left at the end to win by 5 lengths.
The announcer on TVG blamed the other nine jockeys for allowing Saez to get away with a crawling pace that let Mean Mary get away with an easy win.
"It looked like it was going to set up that way," said Motion. "There wasn't any other pace in the race."
"I'm not going to be in any hurry to run her back," said Motion. "She's had a bit of a campaign. I may put her away for awhile. I'd like to have her for a big summer and fall campaign in those bigger races. I think she could be competitive in that division."
