Lassofthemohicans takes next step in Forward Gal Stakes
LASSOFTHEMOHICANS, owned by Chad Schumer in with partnership with Wachtel Stable and Brous Stable LLC, takes her chance for Brendan Walsh in the Forward Gal Stakes (G2) at Gulfstream Park on Saturday.
The exciting daughter of Indian Charlie (pictured left; photo courtesy of Gulfstream Park) was purchased at the OBS April Two-year-olds in Training Sale and ran second in each of her first three starts for original owners Chad Schumer, Tom Van Meter and Meadowland Thoroughbreds. A majority interest in the filly changed hands in late 2014, after which she broke her maiden at Gulfstream Park by five lengths.

From the time he acquired Lassofthemohicans, Brendan Walsh had a goal – to make her a successful 3-year-old. After turning heads in her final start at two, Lassofthemohicans will take the next step toward that goal when she makes her sophomore debut in Saturday’s $200,000 Forward Gal Stakes (G2) at Gulfstream Park.
Lassofthemohicans, a daughter of Indian Charlie and the Tale of the Cat mare Dream Street, has improved with each start during her four-race career. After running second in each of her first three starts, including a heartbreaking nose defeat at Keeneland in her second outing, the filly had a breakthrough performance in a Dec. 28 maiden special weight at Gulfstream. She took command of the race from the start, and despite being pressured throughout the early going, she was able to kick clear at the 3/16ths pole and draw off to an easy five-length victory as jockey Joel Rosario wrapped her up approaching the finish.
