North Rodeo Upsets Favorite at Churchill

Donald Dizney’s North Rodeo surged past 1-5 favorite Spun Silver and Pina Colada in the shadow of the wire to win Saturday’s $47,824 allowance feature for fillies and mares three-years-old and up by a head at Churchill Downs.

 

Ridden by Francisco Torres and trained by Dale Romans, North Rodeo was content to lay off the pace set by Pina Colada and Spun Silver in fractions of :22.43 and :45.89. The two leaders hit the top of the stretch together with North Rodeo moving into third, a length back.

 

At the eighth pole, Spun Silver appeared to have put away Pina Colada only to have North Rodeo surge up to her outside. The three horses hit the wire practically together with North Rodeo completing the six furlongs on a fast main track in 1:10.48.

 

North Rodeo, a 5-year-old California-bred daughter of Stephen Got Even, improved her record to 23-3-5-6 in winning her first race on dirt after 16 starts on synthetic surfaces and six on turf. The victory was worth $27,480 and increased North Rodeo’s bankroll to $240,794.

 

North Rodeo returned $17.20 and $3.80 with no show wagering in the field of five. Spun Silver, ridden by Shaun Bridgmohan, paid $2.10 to place in finishing a head in front of Pina Colada and apprentice Freddie Lenclud. It was six lengths back to All About Anna who was followed by Credit Crunch.

       

Racing resumes Sunday with a 10-race program that begins at 12:45 p.m. (EDT). There is a four-day Pick 6 carryover of $27,182 on races five through 10 with post time for the fifth race at 2:55 p.m. There is also a $6,621 carryover on the Super Hi-5 in the 10th race when patrons must select the first five finishers in order.

 

The 42-day Spring Meet concludes July 4.
