In our LookBack, we follow up on some of last week’s top stories, plus some other notes of interest…
- We ran the story of four female jocks making a mark at Penn National last week (here). Following that article, two of them — Natasha Coddington and Kaylia Albright — added to their win totals. Both riders won two over the weekend; Albright is now fifth among all riders at the track with 66 wins, just one behind Matt Rispoli, while Coddington stands twelfth with 24 wins.
- A couple of weeks back, we ran the story of Thank You Marylou (here), the horse Ken Ramsey named to honor Marylou Whitney. Ramsey had hoped to say those very words once again to the grande dame of Saratoga in the winner’s circle following yesterday’s G2 Adirondack. Marylou the horse performed well, rallying from far behind, but couldn’t quite close the gap and finished third — put up to second via DQ — beaten a couple of lengths. Another region-bred, Maryland-bred Who’s In Town, won the race but was disqualified to fourth for shutting off the favorite in the stretch.
- Our Four on the Floor handicapper enjoyed continued solid success (here). Two of his four top choices won, with another finishing second and the fourth scratched. Yes, a bit chalky again, but he helpfully flagged longshot Mr. Hall’s Opus, who clunked up for second in the Monmouth Oaks to key a $66 exacta.
- Country Life Farm (here) announced that Freedom Child, the Malibu Moon ridgling who was a dazzling, 13-length winner of the G2 Peter Pan, would stand stud next season at the Bel Air property. Freedom Child won two of eight career starts and a shade over $170,000.
