NO ‘CAVING’ IN SORRENTO
Reddam Racing LLC’s Concave
(Colonel John) provided her freshman sire (by Tiznow) with his first stakes winner, parlaying a perfect inside-outside trip into a victory over a dead-game She’s a Tiger
(Tale of the Cat) in Wednesday’s GII Sorrento S. at Del Mar. Impressive and carrying a field-best 76 Beyer from a debut win going five panels over the Hollywood turf course July 12, Concave raced inside as Plesanton shipper Side Letter
(Henny Hughes) carved out the early fractions. “TDN Rising Star”
She’s A Tiger, last-out winner of the Landaluce S. raced three wide around the turn and cut the corner for home, but soon had Concave to deal with. The latter looked like she’d race right away, but She’s a Tiger boxed on gamely and made Concave fight for every yard. Wednesday, Del Mar SORRENTO S.-GII
