Albany, CA (February 26, 2021) – Island Life, our homebred 3-year-old daughter of Ministers Wild Cat, made her first career start a winning one, dead heating for the victory in the opener on the day at Golden Gate Fields going five and one-half furlongs over the all weather course.
Tracking a more experienced foe from second down the backstretch, Island Life challenged around the turn and drew even on the outside with a furlong to run. The two fillies battled to the wire and the photo finish camera could not separate them. The finished one and three-quarter lengths in front of the third place finisher.
Island Life is out of the winning Candy Ride (ARG) mare, Island Candy. She is trained by Jonathan Wong.
