Relentless rains Saturday at Gulfstream Park didn’t stop Eskendereya’s second-time starter Easy to Say from strolling to an easy three length victory in a six furlong maiden special weight contest for 3-year-olds.

Eskendereya now has 14 winners this year, second-best on the Second Crop Sire list. His impressive list of sophomore winners includes graded stakes fillies Eskenformoney and Isabella Sings.
