Gone Astray soared over the $500,000 mark in progeny earnings for the year when four of his 3-year-old fillies scored victories in a span of three days. It began on Thursday at Camarero in Puerto Rico, where Sweet Leyla R. rolled to a 7 1/2-length victory under Hector Berrios, going wire-to-wire at a flat mile. It was the filly's first score after four straight thirds . . .  The next day, Recenttransactions broke her maiden at Gulfstream Park for owner/breeder Tracy Pinchin despite being involved in a severe bumping duel for most of the run through the stretch. She came from off the pace under Edgard Zayas and slipped through along the rail turning for home, then drew out to win by one length, earning a check for $12,800 . . . On Preakness day, Scotland Bay scored her second straight victory, coming from off the pace racing six furlongs with Jonathan Gonzales at Monmouth Park, and pulling away down the lane to prevail by 3 1/2 lengths. It was her third victory in nine starts and was worth $9,519 . . . The same day at Finger Lakes, Bluemoonofsaratoga, a New York-bred, tracked the leader in the four path early, moved up to challenge at the top of the stretch, then drew off to win by 1 1/2 lengths. The 5 1/2-furlong allowance score was her second in five starts and returned a check of $10,140 . . . Gone Astray now has 16 winners this year and his progeny earnings have reached $527,866, second best of all Florida second-crop sires.
