In the 1 1/8-mile test for Florida breds over the fast main track, Nauset Beach went out for the early lead with Piloting a length back in second and odds-on favorite Awesome Slew another half-length back in third. Nauset Beach and jockey Paco Lopez controlled the pace through six furlongs, setting fractions of :24.01, :47.47, and 1:10.87. 

Around the far turn, Awesome Slew (a Graded winner by Awesome Again) attempted to go wide around frontrunners, but Nauset Beach and Hy Riverside were not ready to give up. With those three digging in, it was Hy Riverside, under jockey Jose Ortiz, who won by a bob at the wire. Awesome Slew finished third by a half-length. 

"(Trainer) Antonio (Sano) told me to warm him up good," Ortiz said. "He said try to put him close to the pace, and he will give you a run at the three-eighths pole. At that point I didn't want to go around, because I felt like I had a lot of horse. I wait, wait, wait, and made my way through a hole, and my horse was very, very brave. 

"I knew I was there, but I wasn't sure about the head bob. He gave me everything he had."

This victory was the 5-year-old son of Macho Uno's first stakes win and he's the second Macho Uno stakes winner in a seven day span following the triumph of Tommy Macho in the January 14 Hal's Hope Stakes (G3).

Bred in Florida by Amy Dunne, the gelding was purchased for $32,000 by SJT Racing Stables as a weanling at the 2012 Keeneland November breeding stock sale. He was then consigned by Stephens Thoroughbreds at the 2014 Ocala Breeders' Sales Company April 2-year-olds in training sale and purchased by his current owners for $190,000.

Watch the Nellie Morse Stakes

Breaking from post 3 under a red-hot Trevor McCarthy, Winter rated well in third through the first half-mile of the mile and one sixteenth affair. When McCarthy gave her the call at the top of the stretch she responded, drawing away to a 2 3/4-length score. The grey miss stopped the timer in 1:45.32 while earning her first blacktype victory. For McCarthy, it was his third stakes win on the rich Saturday program at Laurel.

Winter was bred by Adena Springs out of the Mr. Greeley mare Down. She is a graduate of the Adena Springs consignment at the 2015 Fasig-Tipton Two-Year-Old in Training sale, where Adena juveniles only gallop for buyers. She was purchased for $95,000 by owner Michael Schera.

Winter is a perfect two-for-two in 2017 and now has four victories and a trio of runner-up finishes in her 10 race career. She's amassed a bankroll of $135,330. She is Awesome Again's 61st blacktype winner.
