The Rich Girl in a Photo

Bella Cavello Stables' La Chica Rica held off a charging Gallant Dreamer in a photo finish on Friday Night at the Races at Mountaineer Park in the feature race, a $41K allowance. The win was the star mare's fourth in a row, collecting a cool $25K to bring her lifetime earnings to $370K. She earned a 90 Beyer Speed Figure in the effort. Fellow TBA-er Turf Luck , was present for the victory and sent her congratulations to the WNY connections. The 2-5 favorite led throughout and jock Deshawn Parker was able to fully extend his tiring horse and hold off the driving second choice at the wire. Ironic that the rich girl won the same week that her former jock Jeremy Rose was suspended for whip use at Delaware Park, as Rose once called her "nasty."

The stable concluded the weekend with a 3rd by Neon Nights in the second at Colonial Downs in a $9K turf route.

The Mother Goose proved to be a god-awful trip by Proud Spell, who had trouble throughout but still finished second (before being taken down by the stewards) in the four horse field. Here's hoping the winner Music Note and she dual it up again in the Alabama in August.
