Rare Sloppy Track at Colonial Downs

Colonial Downs’ first rainfall of the summer thoroughbred racing season took races off of the turf and onto a sloppy dirt track after race 5 on Monday’s card at Colonial Downs.

 

After moving off of the turf there were fascinating performances in the dirt.  Colonial Downs’ leading jockey Rosemary Homeister, Jr. rode atop H. Graham Motion trained Bum Bum in race 6 and set the pace in the four path and lasted under a final drive to win by a head.  In the seventh race, jockey Christian Olmo prevailed after a slow start atop the favored Secret Style, trained by Richard Hendriks, and closed strongly on the far outside in a 2 ½ length win.

 

The 8th race brought an incredible duel between Will’s Hill, ridden by Geovany Garcia, and Red Victory, ridden by Homeister.  Red Victory set the pace from the start through the final turn when Will’s Hill swung out sharply in the upper stretch to win by 2 ¼ ahead of Red Victory. 

 

In the final race, favorite Cortez the Killer crushed the competition.  Ridden by Tadious Simpson, the Kentucky bred led from halfway into a demanding 15 length win.

 

Colonial Downs presents a nine-race card on Tuesday, June 29.  First post time is 4:00 PM.
