Fateful Dream Rallies for Inglewood Win

Edmund A. Gann's Fateful Dream raced in last place behind moderate fractions before rallying in the stretch to win the $107,100 Inglewood Handicap (gr. IIIT) by a length over National Anthem on Saturday at Hollywood Park. Under David Flores, Fateful Dream completed the 1 1/16 miles in 1:41.65 on a firm turf course.

Hialeah Race Report: Mott's Bench Goes Deep

Bill Mott is not a bridge player. He's too busy, he says, overseeing the training of nearly 200 horses at multiple locations around the East Coast. But he well understands the concept of trumping his opponents. Take, for example, the April 21 Hialeah Turf Cup Handicap (gr. IIT) to which Mott nominated three runners.

Marciano Upsets Burning Roma in Tesio

Win More Stable's Marciano rallied in the stretch at Pimlico Saturday to catch pacesetter Talk Is Money en route to a 1 1/4-length victory in the $145,500 Federico Tesio Stakes. Buring Roma came home another 1 3/4 lengths back in third. Polar Ray was last in the four-horse field.

Keeneland Race Report: Keats Wires Lexington Field

The talent pool of this year's crop of 3-year-olds runs deep, as witnessed over the last few weeks in major Kentucky Derby (gr. I) prep races. An armada of lesser crafts set out April 21 at Keeneland for the Coolmore Lexington Stakes (gr. II) to test the waters one final time before the main event takes place at Churchill Downs in two weeks. Instead of a boat race, the majority of them found choppy seas and roiling water that all but grounded their Derby dreams on the rocks. Just the opening of the starting gate alone had several starters bailing instead of sailing.

Aqueduct Race Report: Country Hideaway Wins Bed O' Roses

Country Hideaway rallied from next-to-last in the seven-horse field and held off a resurgent Critical Eye to win the $157,700 Bed O' Roses Breeders' Cup Handicap (gr. III) Saturday at Aqueduct. Under John Velazquez, the 5-year-old daughter of Seeking the Gold, out of the Pleasant Colony mare Our Country Place, stopped the timer after running a mile in 1:34.98 on a fast track.
