U Glow Girl Another Spa Winner for Girvin

U Glow Girl | Sarah Andrew

7th-Saratoga, $83,000, Msw, 8-17, 2yo, f, 6f, 1:12.28, ft, 7 1/4 lengths.
U GLOW GIRL (f, 2, Girvin–Mexican Miss {SW, $121,055}, by More Than Ready) was one of two in this auction price-restricted maiden with previous racetrack experience, having faded to be a distant third after setting the pace as the favorite in a similar spot July 20. Bet down to 1.15-1 favoritism to give her freshman sire (by Tale of Ekati) his eighth first-crop winner, U Glow Girl contested the early pace outside of Ruler of the Night (Midnight Lute) and wrested command from that one midway on the turn. Roused right-handed by Flavien Prat nearing the entrance to the stretch, U Glow Girl padded her advantage and reported home a 7 1/4-length winner. Risk Free (American Freedom) finished with interest down the center for second ahead of the once-raced Crypto Mama (Cloud Computing). Mexican Miss, who won the Jersey Lilly S. for Brad Grady after being claimed for $30,000 five months prior, has had a standing date with Girvin since, but did not produce a foal the last two seasons.
