Discreetness took the spotlight away from heavily favored Toews on Ice Monday, taking the Smarty Jones Stakes by a neck over Gordy Florida.
Toews on Ice, who finished second in the Los Alamitos Futurity last month, tired badly in the far turn and faded to sixth. Discreetness stalked Toews On Ice and Gordy Florida for most of the race, then went up to challenge Gordy Florida once he took the lead from Toews On Ice.
The two battled down the stretch before Discreetness, a 9-1 shot, gradually pulled away from Gordy Florida. Synchrony finished third. The winning Beyer number was a slow 83.
Discreetness won his second straight stakes race and has now won four races in a row, 4 for 6 in his career.
