Awesome Gem takes Lone Star Handicap

Awesome Gem still has got it at 8. He rallied for a one-length win in the Grade 3, $300,000 Lone Star Park Handicap on Monday, then withstood a claim of foul to nail down the fourth graded stakes win of a career that began in 2006.

“What a warrior,” said Craig Dollase, who trains Awesome Gem for West Point Thoroughbreds.

The Lone Star Park Handicap was the richest race of the meet and the anchor of the annual Million Day program of six stakes. The races are worth a cumulative $1 million and make for the richest card of Thoroughbred racing in Texas. Other top winners on the card included Wasted Tears ($2.80) in the Grade 3, $200,000 Ouija Board Distaff and Thirtyfirststreet ($45.80) in the $200,000 Lone Star Derby.
