Derek Ryan sends out My Sunshine Gal in Monday’s $60,000 Red Cross Stakes for fillies and mares at six furlongs on the main track and her connections hope that the 4-year-old daughter of Bluegrass Cat can earn a trophy for the barn. 

            She tried the $65,000 Primonetta Stakes at the same distance in her last race on April 14 at Pimlico and ran willingly to take third. She figures to move forward from that effort. 

             “She came out of that race in good shape and has been working quite well for this one and we hope that she will run her race,” said Mark Weir, Ryan’s assistant. “Once the gate opens, you always need a little bit of luck on your side.” 

            My Sunshine Gal would prefer dark skies. Her grandsires are Forty Niner and Awesome Again so she is bred up and down to love the mud.  

            “We are really hoping for an off-track because that certainly would help her but it doesn’t look like she’ll get it,” said Weir.
