Stakes win for Bridgmohan
NEW ORLEANS, Louisiana (CMC):
Jamaican jockey Shaun Bridgmohan made virtually all the running aboard favourite Cash Control to capture the US$60,000 Tiffany Lass Stakes at Fair Grounds here last Saturday.
Cash Control grabbed the lead outside the five-eighths pole after fighting Bridgmohan made her running along the rails before easily fending off her challengers in the stretch to reach the wire 2-1/2 lengths clear in a time of one minute, 43.07 seconds. The victory was her third straight but first added money score.
Bridgmohan said he realised the four-year-old bay filly wanted the lead from the break and he complied.
"She was very determined wanting to go, so I dropped my hands and let her do her thing," he said.
Bridgmohan narrowly missed out on another stakes triumph when he finished second by a nose aboard favourite Twirling Cinnamon as 5-1 chance Taylors Angiel won the $60,000 Sugar Bowl Stakes.
