Ravi's Song Rallies in Pelleteri

Mrs. Yoshio Fujita’s Ravi’s Song, unhurried early in Saturday’s featured $60,000 Pelleteri Stakes for older fillies and mares at Fair Grounds, closed with a crescendo by hitting all the high notes late to be best by a length and a half at the wire.

 

“She made a tremendous late move,” said trainer Carl Bowman when describing the race to his wife Diane over the phone immediately after the race. “She really ran her heart out.”

 

“We’ve really had quite a bit of luck with this whole family,” Bowman noted later when speaking to reporters. “Her mother (Lu Ravi) won the Fair Grounds Oaks here and the Chou Croute Stakes twice. But this filly has a lot better mental attitude then her mother. You couldn’t ever hit Lu Ravi with the whip. If you did, she’d just stop.”

 

Jockey Corey Lanerie was aboard Ravi’s Song, riding his third winner of the afternoon. The daughter of Unbridled’s Song accomplished the 1 1/16-mile distance in 1:45.72, increased her career earnings to $198,173 with her fifth victory in 11 lifetime starts and returned mutuels of $12.20, $6.20 and $4.20.

 

“When I called on her at the three-eighths pole, it was like driving a car,” Lanerie said. “I was driving in and out of traffic and she was going pretty fast.”

 

Jim Tafel’s Fighter Wing made the pace with early splits of 24.25 and 48.89, and continued willingly in the late stages to best Skychai Racing and Twin Creeks Farm et al.’s Age of Humor by a length for the runner-up spot.

 

Fighter Wing paid $12 and $6 and Age of Humor returned $5.80 to show.
