The Bloom Handicap – Grade II
6 1/2 Furlongs Dirt Stake Purse $300.000 Filly & Mare 3 Year Olds And Up.
1st Dashboard Rahy, trained by John Henry
There was a hint that this formerly useful sort was coming back to form when she cruised home in an ungraded handicap last time and she confirmed her return today with a game head win. This win puts her comfortably over the $1,000.000 prize money mark, and I see no reason she cant add to that before she is sent to the shed to try and pass on her good genes.
2nd Gottahotone, trained by Team 7 Illusions
A narrow leader for much of the race it took a long time before one could get by her and she battled on bravely for second.
3rd Que Seras Creeps, trained by D J C Racing Stables
Long odds for this three year old but she was only a half length off the win in the end. Its been a long time since she won but this was very close and i can see her winning again before the end of the season.
4th Asclepios Trail, trained by Axeman
Whacked away for a close fourth but struggles at this level to find a winning turn of foot.
