Guillermo Berrios’ My Wandy’s Girl was running out of opposition racing in Puerto Rico since she was purchased for $15, 000 out of the de Meric Sales consignment at the 2011 OBS March Sale. On Thursday, the 4-year-old daughter of Flower Alley put an eight-race win streak on the line in Aqueduct’s $75, 000 Pentelis Stakes but had little trouble coming from off the pace and rolling to victory by a comfortable length. Nine for ten this year, the three time graded stakes winner is now 18-14-2-1 and has earned $255, 710 to date.  watch her under tack work
