Over the weekend..

  • Lucy’s Bob Boy posted the 21st victory of his solid career when he scored by 3 1/4 lengthsin the $50,000 A Huevo Stakes at Charles Town.  It was the five-year-old’s second straight A Huevo triumph.  Trained by Sandra Dono for Linda Sours, the West Virginia-bred son of Flatter shot to the lead the moment the gates opened and controlled the race from there, setting manageable fractions before drawing away to win over Allegheny Jack, with Fred High in third.  Lucy’s Bob Boy has won five times this year and overall sports a 21-4-0 ledger from 31 career starts with earnings of $864,805.
  • In our other weekend races to watch…
    • Perfectly True, a three-year-old colt trained by Kathleen DeMasi, rolled to a sharp 9 1/2 length score to break his maiden at Laurel.  Post-time favorite Awesome Bill ran second.
    • Cerro won Laurel’s Saturday feature, a $51,838 allowance/optional claimer.  Trained by Dane Kobiskie for PTK, LLC, Cerro controlled the race from the first jump and won by a couple. Post-time fave Snake Pit finished fifth.
    • Grand Hall won a $30,400 allowance/optional claimer at Penn National for trainer Tim Kreiser and owner Ronald Ulrich; it marked the fifth time the daughter of Graeme Hall had won that condition.
    • Valid, a main track-only entrant in the Grade 3 Tropical Turf Handicap at Gulfstream Park West, scratched when that race stayed on the lawn.
