Bluesbdancing Edges Pretty Jenny in Governor’s Lady
Bob and Nancy Bartels’ Bluesbdancing stalked the pace while three-wide early, moved stoutly on the turn for home, wrestled the lead away from Pretty Jenny in the stretch, and bested that foe by a length in Saturday’s $94,025 Governor’s Lady Handicap at Hawthorne. It was 5 ˝ lengths further back to third place finisher Miss Classified. The pacesetting Denoun N Deverb faded to seventh as the lukewarm 5-2 favorite.
Eddie Razo Jr. guided the 4-year-old daughter to the win for trainer Terrell Gore in a final time of 1:10.61 over a wet fast track.
Bluesbdancing returned $7.80, $4.40 and $3.80. Pretty Jenny paid $4.80 and $3.40, and Miss Classified returned $10.80 to show.
Governor’s Lady Handicap Quotes:
Eusebio Razo, winning rider, Bluesbdancing: "She’s been working so well. The last time I rode her she was so relaxed. I worked her since, maybe two of three times, and she was doing even better for this race. She raced so nice and relaxed, there were no problems at all. I was a little concerned around the 3/8th pole and didn’t want to let Pretty Jenny get too easy of a lead but once I got up to her, my filly just drew away. She’s very good."
Tim Thorton, rider of 3rd place finisher Miss Classified: "She set up pretty good angled out and turned for home. It was a pretty tough race but I was happy with the way she ran."
Chris Emigh, jockey of 2nd place finisher Pretty Jenny: "She (winner Bluesbdancing) came over on me a little (in the deep stretch), but she was clear. She tried hard, and didn't give up. The winner is good right now, and I accidentally hit the winner in the face with my whip turning for home."
Christine Janks, trainer of 2nd place finisher Pretty Jenny: "That other filly (Bluesbdancing) is really tough right now. It looked like Jenny didn't want to be down on the inside, because when she got out, she took off again. The other filly was kind of letting up cause she had it won too. The first time we ran her, I thought she was more ready, but got tired. I was really happy with the way she stepped up and improved today."
