1 1/8 Mile Dirt Stake Purse $200.000 Open 4 Year Olds And Up Foaled In FL.
1st Seminole, trained by On The Map Racing
There was almost certainly only two people watching this race and there was only ever going to be one that was smiling at the end. As expected this rare commodity, a stakes winning autogen, made all and never looked like getting beat winning hard held by a length. This was a nice purse for the horse that had been second twice in a row at Graded level and one that was thoroughly deserved.
2nd On The Grind, trained by Hambletonian Stable
Stayed on to win the race of the stablemates as weight won the day.
3rd Caught A Ghost, trained by Hambletonian Stable
Started a close second favourite but could only stay on at the one pace from the trail as the winner dictated the pace.
4th Fat Lady, trained by Hambletonian Stable
As expected the weight stopped this one in its tracks although i am not sure that 6Lbs in real life would’ve stopped a stakes winner beating a couple of average allowance horses. This however is HRP and with everything so close in ability regardless of class sadly this happens more often than not.
