Saint Brigid Comes in 2nd!
SB was entered in the 2nd race at Turfway Park on February 11 - a $7,500 Maiden Claiming. SB ran a good race and finished second out of 12 runners!
She broke well; settled comfortably off the pace down the backstretch; made her move in the far turn; and passed two horses down the stretch. Though she didn't have enough "kick" to catch the front runner, she was clearly second best by three lengths.
Brigid's efforts put her on the board in back-to-back races, and she improved one place over her last out. SB has now finished in the money four out of six races.
We will continue racing at Turfway Park throughout February and March to try to get that elusive win and break Brigid's maiden. Looking forward, Mojo Racing Partners are planning on a Texas homecoming in April when Lone Star Park begins its 2009 Thoroughbred Meet.
So, stay tuned—there will be more exciting news to come.
