You never know until you try! Inimitable Romanee had never tried one and a half miles before and never run in a Graded Stakes. She was totally unfancied in the betting as she went off as the 28/1 outsider. The article from the Bloodhorse below sums the race up, along with Graham’s comments and Chris De Carlo’s homework.
It shows what a ‘hard-knocking’ mare she is as although this is just her third win, she has been Stakes placed so many times her earnings are over $300,000. Congratulations to owner/breeder Gallagher Farm.
Meanwhile, Lemon De Oro was third in her first Stake at Hollywood Park. She is owned and bred by Farfellow Farms Ltd, who coincidentally bred (but not owned) the winner. Congratulations to them.
