Adorable Miss took her record to two-for-two with a late-charging victory in the Honey Ryder S. at Gulfstream. A narrow debut winner going 7 1/2 panels over this course Jan. 22, the bay buy was let go as the third choice for this black-type bow. Sitting back in fifth off opening splits of :23.77 and :47.93, the bay steadily advanced up the outside on the backstretch, but still had several to beat at the top of the lane. She found a new gear in mid-stretch and charged down the center of the track to win going away. Noble Ready won a photo for the place, while favored Conquest Hardcandy faded to sixth after setting the pace. The winner's unraced dam, out of GISW Favorite Funtime, is responsible for a 2-year-old Lookin At Lucky colt and foaled a colt by Real Solution last term before being bred back to Kitten's Joy.
