Llorona: Had Numerous Minor Ailments and Should Improve

Three year old filly debut runner for Richard Mandella finally got her 1st start on Friday in a maiden special weight for fillies and mares 3 and up at ¾ on the main. Off as the heavy 2 to 5 choice in a field of 7 under Prat, she broke running from the 6 hole and contested the early pace from the outside. She cleared on the turned and was guided home to a six length victory while geared down the final sixteenth. Mandella has always been high on this daughter of Mendelssohn, but she has had numerous minor ailments that have prevented her from getting to the gate. She had excellent drills coming into her debut and won like a filly with a bright future.
