Bates Stable, Inc. and Patricia Julian’s Roses in the South stepped into stakes company for the first time in Sunday’s $75,000 Melody of Colors Stakes on the turf at Gulfstream Park, took the lead at the start and never looked back, opening a long lead in the stretch and coasting to a 2-1/2 length victory. Her first stakes score leaves the 3-year-old Florida-bred daughter of City Place, trained by Larry Bates, with a 10-5-1-0 record and earnings of $133,750.  Consigned by Julie Davies, Agent, to the 2017 OBS June Sale, she turned in an Under Tack eighth in :10 flat before she was purchased by Larry Bates for $8,500. watch her under tack video
