Foolish: 2nd in Much Needed Race Where 3rd Place was 6 Lengths Back

Three year old filly debut runner for Tim Yakteen, was entered for a $62,500 claiming tag on Friday at five and a half on the turf. Off at 4/1 in a field of 8, she broke OK under Prat and was about five off the lead down the back side. She put in a huge move at the ¼ pole to reach contention, then “hung” in the drive in a race she obviously needed. She ended up second in this race and it was a full six lengths back to the third horse. This daughter of Practical Joke is bred to win early and she’s a soon winner for a solid barn.
