One Horse Crosses Finish Line at Charles Town

In the eighth race at Charles Town on February 29, only one out of the eight runners finished an ugly allowance sprint in the slop.

Sharp Beauty set the pace but broke down near the quarter pole under Carlos Marrero, setting off a chain reaction that left only one horse and rider standing at the finish line. 

Little Miss Jane, Spunkette, Shine For Me, and Simsational fell and walked off.

Page's Promise fell and walked off with cuts on her left front leg and left stifle.

Ideal Thoughts stumbled at the start and trailed before losing her rider trying to avoid the spill.

Post time favorite Miss Fifty won the demolition derby after checking sharply to avoid the spill under Oswald Pereira. She paid $5.60 to win.
