Honey of a score gets Treasure Beach winner No. 13
Treasure Beach all but cemented one of the leading Florida freshman sire titles for 2017 yesterday when Coco Honey broke her maiden under Brian Hernandez Jr. over a sloppy racetrack at Fair Grounds. Hernandez had the filly sitting in perfect stalking position in the one-mile race, moved her up three wide on the final turn, then held off 2-1 favorite Rahway by a neck, taking down the winner’s share of $12,000. Coco Honey became winner No. 13 for Treasure Beach, giving the stallion a two-up lead with 10 days left in the race. He raised his progeny earnings to $555,739, second on the money list behind Poseidon’s Warrior, who leads with $587,553.
