ONT Colleen Stakes – Grade III
1 Mile Turf Stake Purse $125.000 Filly 3 Year Olds.
1st Deep Atonement Nakamura Stables Ryan S
The Nak factor triumphed over the hack factor in this race as this nice filly was well placed from a good draw to win this race by just under a length. This mile certainly seems to be much more her trip than the 10 furlongs of her last start and she was pretty dominant in the end.
2nd Call Sarah First Street Stables Husbands P
The winner was better but she still ran a solid race to be second and she looks to have plenty of good races ahead of her. An on pace type she may have just found the mile at this level stretched her stamina too far.
3rd Full Of Heart Arindel Bahen S R
Closed hard from behind and did well to be beaten just a length into third off a pretty average early pace. Looks to have a future and seems consistent at all levels.
4th Run Fitchew Night Rider Stables Wilson E J
The hack factor of a first turf run only failed by just over a length as this one flew home. The wider gate made it difficult for him to find a position and ultimately that was his undoing, worth another chance on the grass i think.
