Girls Know Best wins second stakes of 2018
Saturday, May 19, 2018
Caleb's Posse's Girls Know Best stamped herself as one of the most versatile sprint fillies in the country after Saturday's win in the $100,000 The Very One S. over a very sloppy Pimlico racetrack.

The 4-year-old filly captured the Ladies Turf Sprint in January over a firm course at Gulfstream Park, and most recently won a Keeneland allowance by six lengths on a yielding turf.

In Saturday's five furlong affair, Girls Know Best tracked Victoria's Fire until mid-stretch, then went by her at will to win by nearly two lengths in 57 seconds flat.

“She's very straightforward. She's got the speed and she's got the dimension,” said her rider Javier Castellano. “I like her because she doesn't have to be in the lead, and that other horse she targeted and let dictate the race. She just sat right off her and relaxed. If she wants to go to the lead she can, but today they were going fast and my goal was to save something for the end and that's what happened. She finished really strong.” 

Girls Know Best has won nine of 15 starts and earned $320,024. Her dam Now U Know has produced six winners, including Delta Princess S. (G3) winner Now I Know.
