CAMBIER PARC (f, 3, Medaglia d'Oro&log=">Medaglia d'Oro–Sealy Hill {HotY, Ch. 3yo Filly, Ch. Grass Mare-Can & GSW & MGISP, $1,747,081}, by Point Given), a $1.25-million yearling purchase by OXO Equine, took to the turf with a good-looking and well-bet maiden score Wednesday at Gulfstream for trainer Chad Brown. Heavily favored in her debut Nov. 3 on the Aqueduct main, the bay was outfooted after a slow start and showed mild interest late to be fourth. Backed down to 13-10 off a 5-1 morning-line quote here, Cambier Parc settled in a comfortable tracking spot as the field strung out behind sharp splits of :22.69 and :46.44 down the backstretch. Creeping up to the leaders progressively wider nearing the lane, she surged to the front outside the furlong grounds and drew clear to triumph by four lengths. Cap de Creus (Tapit) got up late to complete the exacta.

“It was a great win,” trainer Chad Brown said. “The horse has always showed a lot of promise, and we finally got her on the right surface. The owner, Larry Best, is here today and I'm happy he got a nice win here with a promising filly. He's been real patient with her and it looks like her future is on turf.”

The winner's dam, a three-time Canadian champion, was bought by Bonne Chance Farm for $750,000 at Keeneland November in 2015 with Cambier Parc in utero before she justified that investment when hammering for seven figures at KEESEP in 2017. Sealy Hill, who also has produced Hillaby (Distorted Humor), Ch. Female Sprinter-Can & GSW, $282,265; Belle Hill (Sky Mesa), GSW, $180,725; and Gale Force (Giant's Causeway), GSW, $138,611, has another Medaglia d'Oro filly who went for $425,000 toWhisper Hill Farm at KEESEP in the fall, and she produced a colt by Into Mischief last spring.
