Jose Caraballo pushed the buttons on the five-year-old daughter of Southern Image, who was geared down nearing the finish line to win by a length and a quarter over late rallying longshot Withgreatpleasure. Made to Love Her took third.
Winning Image has captured four stakes, all under Caraballo. She is in training at Parx Racing under Michael Aro.
“This filly is as honest a filly as you could be on,” said Caraballo. “I had a lot of horse left. I never rode her. I just tapped her on the shoulder. Nothing. She’s a lot of horse.”
“She’s awesome. She came into this race 110%,” said Aro. “It would have taken a heck of a filly to beat her today.”
Winning Image paid $5.80.
