BEL Race #3 7f Turf Stake
Purse $150.000 (plus up to $22.500 for NY-breds) For Four Year Olds And Upward.
1st Tokyo Secret, trained by Tiratzo
Showed wonderful versatility by winning two different seven furlong races on two different surfaces. An overnight winner last time in triple digit speed figures she did it again today on the turf with equal speed and heart. In the stalk he just had enough left to hold on by a neck and his trainer will be busy sourcing seven furlong races for his for the rest of the season.
2nd Night Time Breeze, trained by Maxmillion Farm
He was clawing back the ground on the winner all the way to the line but just couldnt manage the last neck. Made to lead by the wide gate speed push this time he was allowed by the draw to run a much tidier race today and very nearly pulled it off.
3rd Dance Lively, trained by Cedar Road
Forced a little wide to make his run he was gaining ground all the way but could never quite get close enough to mount a serious challenge. This was a sound effort by an improving four year old who clearly has a future at this level.
4th Yankee Baseball, TwinTowersRacing
Again failed to live up to his work times and looks the best example on HRP of a classy horse without the ‘heart’ code written into his cartoon DNA. Another good effort but thats one win in fifteen now and he must be a real head ache for his trainer.
