Motion Barn Upbeat About Silver Reunion

There was an upbeat feeling at Graham Motion’s barn Sunday morning, the day after 4-year-old filly Silver Reunion returned to the races after 10 months off and finished an excellent second, beaten just a half-length by winner Dynaslew in the Ballston Spa.

 

The effort, under jockey Rajiv Maragh, was even more impressive considering Silver Reunion broke through the gate before the start and then set a solid pace. She dug in when confronted by Dynaslew and fought to the wire.

 

“I think she’s a Grade 1 filly,” said Motion assistant John Panagot. “The jock said she was off the bridle the whole time on the backside and didn’t even pick it up until he shook her.”

 

Panagot said no race had been picked out for Silver Reunion, who is owned by Brereton Jones, but “we’ll keep her eligible for everything.

 

“Rajiv was adamant that if she didn’t break through the gate, she wins,” Panagot said.
