TETRICK GUIDES GLORIA WYOMING TO VICTORY IN $120,000 LADY LINCOLN LAND STAKE
With North America’s leading reinsman Tim Tetrick in tow, Joe & Guy Dimaggio and Shaun Phillip’s Gloria Wyoming made every call a winning one in 1:59.2.
Confidently handled by Tetrick, the Ken Collier-trained miss headed straight to the front from post position six, and was comfortably in front as she trotted by an opening panel in 30.2.
After that soft opening split the action began to heat up heading to the half-mile mark. So Sexy (Dave Magee) was leading the charge while first over and she was just a half-length behind Gloria Wyoming as she sped by the halfway station in 59.4.
Despite being headed briefly on the final turn, Tetrick still had Gloria Wyoming in front by a head over So Sexy as they ladies reached the three-quarter-mile mark in 1:30.0.
Seemingly able to find a gear that no others could match, Gloria Wyoming sprinted away from her rivals in the lane. Effortlessly opening up a 6 ˝ length lead at the mid-stretch call the daughter of Wilson Wyoming looked like she was out for a stroll in the park as she reported home in 29.2 to win by five easy lengths. Cardinal Speedy (Brent Holland) rallied late to be the bridesmaid while Guilty Pleasures (Ryan Anderson) was a distant third.
Campaigned mainly on the Illinois fair circuit throughout the summer, this $1,500 yearling buy now boasts a record of seven wins and two seconds in 13 career starts with earnings of $75,861. Getting plenty of respect at the windows, Gloria Wyoming returned $4.60, $3.20 & $2.40 to her backers.
