Peace Rolls

  • 2 Comments

Cambria Sunrise and Captivating Lyrics dueled early. Captivating Lyrics won that battle, but fresh troops were coming. Peace Roll, Always Pretty, and Kentucky Nectar joined Captivating Lyrics, as it was four in a row for a time. Peace Roll emerged from the line to get the victory. Ignored at the windows, despite the presence of leading rider Rafael Bejarano, Peace Roll paid $22.80 to help the pick 6 carry over.

Three Maiden Watch horses in this one, and they'll break side-by-side-by-side. Gemswick Park (Speightstown - Queen's Park by Relaunch) will probably receive most of the attention, as she is coming off of a hard-fought victory in the 6 furlong Old Hat Stakes (gr. III) at Gulfstream on January 4. Previously, she was 2nd in the Tempted Stakes (gr. III) at Aqueduct on November 2, and 3rd in the Frizette (gr. I) at Belmont on October 4. She has been working at Palm Meadows to prepare for this one. C. S.

Her most recent effort came on December 5 at Delta Downs in the Delta Princess, where she finished 2nd. C. S.

That was her first defeat after three straight wins, including two stakes. She won the Cassidy Stakes on October 18, and the Joe O'Farrell Juvenile Fillies Stakes on November 8. Both of those races were at Calder. She has been working at Calder since the Old Hat.

Hopeful Image (Gulch - Marquet Rent by Marquetry) has run 8 times, winning twice, and finishing 2nd once, and 3rd once. Hopeful Image's starts include a 3rd behind Renda in the Brave Raj Stakes.

Since that race, she's had three works at Tampa Bay Downs, including a bullet 5 furlong work on January 23. She also recorded a bullet 5 furlong work before winning the Sandpiper.

Heart Ashley (Lion Heart - Pretty 'N Smart by Beau Genius) has run 3 times. In her first start, on October 29 at Churchill Downs, she finished 2nd.
