Havre De Grace Beats Switch in Apple Blossom

Havre De Grace wins 2011 Azeri.
Havre De Grace tracked the pace in third and ran down Switch in late stretch to win Friday's Apple Blossom from Oaklawn Park. 

Absinthe Minded took full advantage of her inside draw and set reasonable splits and was tracked throughout by Switch. Havre De Grace sat comfortably behind the top pair.

The two early runners hooked up in the stretch and Switch grabbed a short lead in the lane. Havre De Grace started gaining momentum and smartly rallied down the middle to get the job done.

The Larry Jones trainee completed her eight and one-half furlong journey in 1:42.19 and paid $3 to win.

Switch finished 2nd and pacesetter Absinthe Minded was 3rd for leading trainer Wayne Lukas.

she is clearly the best, older filly or mare, just won it for fun.
I agree dubby and Waya. This mare is proving herself very nicely and is slowly but grandly moving her way to being a great little filly! I'm really excited to see what more comes out of her!
Havre De Grace hands down is the best older filly or mare in America and she's proven that running at distances that arent her best. When we stretch out to 9furlongs and longer she's really going to thrive. The sky is the limit with this filly. And unlike others they wont do any ducking with her. She has taken down Cali's top 2 horses and there is more where that comes from.
She is becoming an awwesome filly. Dare I say the best older horse in America right now?
