The Turf Dash
5 Furlongs Turf Stake Purse $100.00 Open 4 Year Olds And Up.
1st Gleaming Spirit Mb Stables Centeno D E
With so many of the BC champs turning into BC chumps there was an element of concern as this one headed to the post looking almost unbeatable on the form lines. If anyone can stop the rot its Mb Stables though and this one went the perfect race cantering home by a length. Even at this early stage you would have to be thinking favorite for a repeat but theres a lot of water and three year olds to go under the bridge before that date in November.
2nd Pip Ferro Estero Farms Suarez A
Tracked the winner but didnt quite have the trip to get nearer to him. This was a good effort though for a horse who was a cheap claimer this time last year.
3rd Viking Natural Delta Farms Ferrer J C
Looked to be going well enough approaching the final furlong but was outclassed by the first two in the run to the line.
4th Regret Nothing Maxmillion Farm Hernandez H
Last through the first furlong it was an uphill battle after that, he made ground to be fourth in an eye catching effort but this style of late charging can often cause problems in these big field sprints.
