SPLASHY KISSES (Blame) broke alertly with Joel Rosario up and led after a furlong while challenged on the outside. On even terms entering the stretch, Splashy Kisses dispatched her rival and charged home a 5 3/4-length winner. She is the first winner from the Kirkwood Gulfstream Gallop contingent, a group selected by Kip Elser to gallop only rather than breeze.
