Welch Favorites Shine in Silhouette Star Divisions
Tomato and Go Go Gabby, both sent to the post at odds of 3-5 by trainer Roger Welch, posted dominating victories in their respective divisions of the Silhouette Star for Illinois 3-year-old trotting fillies on Wednesday night at Hawthorne Race Course.
In the first division, Tomato remained perfect from four starts this season by winning the evenings curtain raiser for driver Tim Tetrick in a final time of 2:00 1/5 over a sloppy track. Fifth on the rail past the opening half, the daughter of Valley Victor swooped on the outside nearing the three-quarters, and drew off late to win by 2 ½ lengths over Fox Valley Shimmy. Giant Jellybean finished third.
In the second division (race five), Go Go Gabby won her second consecutive start to begin her sophomore campaign, and she never had to take a deep breath in the 6 ĵ length victory. Fourth on the rail past the opening quarter, this daughter of Valley Victor quickly brushed to the front before the half for driver Dave Magee, and was not threatened thereafter, stopping the timer in 2:00. Phil Mc Rakin finished a distant second, just in front of Fox Valley Go Girl, who grabbed the show dough.
