Awesome Belle Scores Second Straight Stake Win in Crystal Rail
MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (August 18, 2012) – Having halted a nine-race losing streak with a victory in the $75,000 Three Ring Stakes on July 21, the Jacks or Better Farms, Inc. homebred filly Awesome Belle won for the second straight time when leading at every call to take the co-featured $75,000 Crystal Rail Stakes at Calder Casino & Race Course on Saturday.
“When I looked at the race, I thought there were a few other horses in there that had speed, so I was a little surprised they let me go like they did,” winning rider Fernando Jara said after piloting Awesome Belle to her front-running win. “And when she broke good, I knew I had to go for it.”
