Benefitting from a well-judged ride by jockey Umberto Rispoli, R3 Racing’s A G Indy scored a neck victory over Time Limit in the $200,000 Senator Ken Maddy Stakes on Friday at Del Mar. The five-furlong sprint over the infield Jimmy Durante turf course was a supporting race on the first day of the two day Breeders’ Cup World Championships.
A G Indy, under jockey Umberto Rispoli, reached the wire a half-length in front of Time Limit, with Hear My Prayer third in the field of 10 fillies and mares. Time for the distance was 56.71 seconds.
A G Indy returned $15.40 after her fourth victory in 13 outings. Doug O’Neill trains the winner, a four-year-old filly by Take Charge Indy.
“She does like this track, and I thought Umberto just gave her a great ride,” O’Neill said. “There’s a lot of speed here and he got to sit just off the pace and when they turned for home, he found a lane and got it done. Great race by the filly and a great ride by Umberto.”
