'PEACH' OF A WIN IN UNIQUE TYPE HANDICAP
ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. (September 17, 2004) -- Lamont H. Nienast LLC's Synco Peach led from start to finish and prevailed by a half length in the $40,000 Unique Type Handicap for Illinois-bred distaffers Friday at Arlington Park.
Larry Sterling Jr. rode the daughter of Whadjathink who covered the mile in 1:38.13 after setting fractions of :24.10, :47.33, 1:11.96 and 1:24.61 along the way.
The Unique Type was the fifth victory in seven starts this year for the homebred 4-year-old and the sixth in 10 starts overall for the Percy Scherbenske-trained filly who earned $24,000 Friday to boost her bankroll to $154,380.
Cashmere Miss made a belated rally to finish second in the seven-horse field. It was another head back to third-place finisher Gracility. Fighting Fever, Indian Jewel, Expendable and Natural Image completed the order of finish.
Synco Peach, the 7-10 favorite, paid $3.40, $2.80 and $2.20. Cashmere Miss returned $4.80 and $3. Gracility paid $2.40.
