Liam’s Dove Gets It Done – Wins the DEL MAR JUVENILE FILLIES TURF S
Gary Barber’s Liam’s Dove broke her maiden in her third career start when she hung on by a head to win the $103,000 Del Mar Juvenile Fillies Turf Stakes.
Ridden by Kyle Frey for trainer Peter Miller, Liam’sDove set the pace and had a 2 1/2-length advantage inthe stretch, but Helens Well rallied from last of 11 andcut the margin down to a head at the wire. The Liam’s Map filly ($71.80) completed the mile in 1:36.65 onfirm turf, paying.
Liam’s Dove was bred in Kentucky by Marablue Farm out of the Hawk Wing mare The Dove, whose last
registered foal is a yearling Goldencents filly.
Carry Frommer, agent, purchased Liam’s Dovefor $75,000 out of Taylor Made Sales Agency’s
consignment to the 2020 Fasig-Tipton Selected Yearlings Showcase. Frommer then consigned the filly
to the Ocala Breeders’ Sales Spring Sale of 2-Year-Olds in Training, where Miller, acting as agent, bought her for $120,000. With a win and a third in three starts, Liam’s Dove has earned $68,900.
“She fell out of there and I saw that we were all pretty much in a straight line,” said winning rider Kyle Frey. “So, I clucked to her a little bit and got a good spot up front. On the backside I saw her ears go up, and that’s when you know they’re happy. We just went on with it from there and she got it done.”
