Dynamic Strike Hits Late in Miracle Wood

Fitzhugh LLC’s Dynamic Strike rallied to win the $80,000 Miracle Wood Stakes, the feature offering on this sun lit afternoon at Laurel Park.

 

Ridden by Forrest Boyce and trained by Richard Small, the lightly raced son of Smart Strike stalked the pace before closing five wide down the stretch, just inside of Where’s Dominic, and battled that one to the 1/16th pole before edging away to win by a length. Lunar Rock rallied furiously up the rail to take third. Post time favorite Vegas No Show was able to save ground early but could finish no closer than fifth.

 

In his two previous starts, Dynamic Strike had posted victories after battling for the lead. Now three for four lifetime, this is his first added money score.

 

“The race set up good,” said Boyce. “He’s been going to the lead and this was our chance to find out if he could do it another way. He dug in against that other horse and he did it pretty well.”

 

Dynamic Strike paid $7.80.

 

Small’s other starter in the Miracle Wood, Alpha Mike Foxtrot, fell in deep stretch and had to be humanely euthanized. His rider, Jozbin Santana, was not hurt.

 

Coddington Wins First Race

 

Turning for home, a gaping hole opened in front of Go Money Go and apprentice Natasha Coddington. They took advantage of their luck and galloped right through, marking the first win for the 20-year old apprentice from Seattle, Washington.

 

Coddington said, “I’ve been race riding about two months. I’m just freelancing right now and hoping to do my best.”
