It’s been a good year for seven-figure purchases. Like Gamine, Spice Is Nice cost in excess of $1 million. She sold for $1.05 million at Keeneland September. After a dazzling maiden win, she was second best behind Tonalist’s Shape in the Davona Dale and will likely meet that same rival in the Gulfstream Park Oaks. Considering the Davona Dale was just her second career start, she has a license to improve. She will need to not just to beat Tonalist’s Shape, but to show she has what it takes to win the Oaks.
