TOUR HALL DEBUTS WITH A WIN IN PSYCHIC SPIRIT STAKE


Tour Hall
Dave Magee guided Tour Hall to a 1 1/2 length victory over nine rivals in Wednesday's $10,000 Psychic Spirit Stake.
Illinois conceived and foaled two-year-old trotting colts grabbed top billing on Wednesday’s Balmoral card as a field of 10 youngsters battled in the $10,000 Psychic Spirit Stake.

Looking like a seasoned veteran, Mike Brink and Loren Tournear’s Tour Hall made his career debut a winning one, rallying from far back to post a 1 1/2 length victory in 2:00.2 for driver Dave Magee.

Unhurried early on after leaving from post position eight, the gelded son of American Native-Broadway And Fifth was content to sit in seventh as the lead changed hands several times through splits of 31.0, 1:00.3 and 1:31.1.

Magee then moved the Mike Brink trainee to the outside mid-way around the final turn and the long striding bay began picking off rivals as the field headed for home.

Finishing off his debut in style, Tour Hall trotted home in an impressive 28.0 with only minimal urging from Magee to open his career on a winning note. Bobby B Breeze (Mike Oosting) finished second while Gray N Cloudy (Kyle Wilfong) held on for the show dough.

Coupled in the wagering with Just Leo (8th), Tour Hall returned $10.60, $5.40 and $2.40 to his backers.
