I apologize for not previewing the 2 Fair Grounds Maiden Special Weight races (see below under "Other January 21 Entries). They slipped through the cracks. Blame it on the snow.

January 20 Results

A Famous Win

Beautifulnightmare (Devil His Due - Hey Ghaz by Ghazi) was scratched, leaving just 5 to run on the good track. Famous Rose (Forest Danger - Famous Story by Rahy) was the even-money choice, but Rhondda Gardens (Flower Alley - Catchy Patton by Patton) took some money as well. Third Row Center (Rockport Harbor - Retained by Star of the Crop) was almost 6-1. Famous Rose was a little stubborn at the load. Bangzoomtothemoon (Malibu Moon - Kona Kat by Mountain Cat) was restless in the gate, and had to be backed out. Then, she required a girth adjustment. This was a little bit of an adventure, because she was being feisty and was quite free with her feet. Finally, Channing Hill hopped back on and they loaded her up again. First-timer Jan Beth Jo (Chief Seattle - Nasty Cure by Cure the Blues) was off slowly, and gave the rest a head start. Favorite Famouse Rose went to the lead. She was pursued by Rhondda Gardens. There was a bit of a break back to Third Row Center and Bangzoomtothemoon, who raced together. Famous Rose lengthed her lead after a half. Making a move to enter the picture was Jan Beth Jo. She took second, and put a dent in Famous Rose's lead. But, she was no real threat for the top spot, with Famous Rose coming home 3 lengths in front. Rhonnda Gardens just held Bangzoomtothemoon for third, and Third Row Center trailed the field. Famous Rose won like an odds-on should, but Jan Beth Jo delivered a nice debut after a slow start. Watch the Replay.

Don from PA/DE

Hi Chris Wear Red was a big surprise I did't see the race and did save some $$$, but the other two favorites didn't seem to factor either, leave it up to HH, next time? Mott will do what is best I feel... and maybe he will be a slow starter...Don?

Blood-Horse Staff

Don - I thought Wear Red's race was a little odd. It may have been the turf, which was listed as firm, but had been good earlier in the day. The fractions were slow and a 31-1 shot won, so the others were probably compromised. I'm not ready to give up on her yet.
