Raetodandty Upsets Green Flash

Del Mar logo

Longshot Raetodandty, owned and trained by Val Brinkerhoff and piloted by Joe Talamo, forged to the front in the final yards to win the featured $105,745 Green Flash Handicap in a $23 surprise Wednesday before 12,500 racing fans.


Always well-positioned in the five-furlong sprint over the infield Jimmy
Durante Turf Course, Raetodandty rallied gamely in the last sixteenth to overhaul Streakin’ Mohican and win by a neck in :55.64 for the distance.


Ventana, the 5-2 favorite, was a close-up third, a half-length behind the runner-up and 1 ¼ lengths in advance of Lt. Hopeful in the field of eight turf speedsters.


Raetodandty, a California-bred four-year-old son of Freespool, returned $23, $9.60 and $5.40 across the board while earning $69,567 with his fifth victory in a dozen career efforts. His earnings now total $226,878.


Streakin’ Mohican, with Rafael Bejarano up, returned $4.60 and $3, while Ventana, piloted by Patrick Valenzuela, paid $3 to show.


Although third in the feature on Ventana, Valenzuela had a successful day as he booted in three winners with his first three mounts of the afternoon, in the first, third and fourth races.


There was a single perfect ticket in the Pick Six and it was worth $97,218.80.
