Potomac River Flows in Fair Grounds 'Cap

Maribel Ruelas’ Potomac River, ridden by Juan Vargas and void of early foot, commenced a bold rally in the final sixteenth of Saturday’s Grade III Fair Grounds Handicap over a Stall-Wilson turf course rated good and got up in the last jump to best Calumet Farm’sSkyring by a nose after finishing eighth in the local oval’s Grade III E. R. Bradley Handicap Jan. 18.

“Well, in that last race he was not ready,” said trainer Jose Camejo, who was accomplishing the first stakes win of his career.  “He shipped from Kentucky and he was not 100 percent.  We fixed a couple of things and he was 100 percent today.”

Potomac River lit up the tote board with mutuels of $31.40, $14.40 and $5.40, toured the distance in 1:50.52 and increased his career earnings to $322,676 with his sixth win in 20 lifetime starts.

Sky Ring set the early fraction of 24.28, lost the lead to Ken & Sarah Ramsey’s Gentleman’s Kitten in the run down the backstretch, who covered the half in 48.70, regained command at the eighth pole, could not withstand the winner in the last jump but paid $17.40 and $6.20.

Cathy and Bob Zollars’ Daddy Nose Best rallied to get the third position, a length behind Skyring and returned $2.20.

Gentleman’s Kitten, Slip and Drive, Hard Aces, and Unitarian completed the order of finish.
