Columbus, MN – My Kiwi Lady N scored her fourth win of the season with a three-length, 1:53.1 tally in the Tuesday afternoon (Sept. 15) feature at Running Aces.
Sent off as the 4-5 favorite from her assigned outside post seven in the $9,000 Fillies and Mares Open, driver Jacob Cutting floated My Kiwi Lady N off the gate in fourth position and picked up immediate cover as Another Beach Day (Braxten Boyd) was locked in battle early with Amasa Arion (Rick Magee).
The early battle up front produced quick opening fractions of :27.2 and :56, and My Kiwi Lady N benefitted from live cover all the way into the final turn before tipping three-wide and taking the lead as they swing for home.
My Kiwi Lady N ($3.80) had plenty of pace and drew away from the field in the lane, stopping the timer in 1:53.1 while Motu Moonbeam N (Mooney Svendsen) closed from the back of the pack to be a clear second. Windmeupnwatchmego (Dean Magee) came from last to nab third.
My Kiwi Lady N is a 7-year-old daughter of Art Major owned and trained by Chris Scicluna. She now has 14 career wins and just eclipsed $100,000 in career earnings.
Spectacular Sunset (Rick Magee, $4.40) captured the $5,500 2-Year-Old Open Pace for his second career win in just three starts. After following in the pocket through the first half, Magee came the leader Alilthundadownunda (Nick Roland) down the backside, and the two traded blows all the way to the finish.
After appearing defeated in deep stretch, Spectacular Sunset dug deep and surged to the finish line to secure a one-length score in 1:56.3 over Alilthundadownunda with SD Eliminator (Brian Detgen) well back in third.
The winner is a colt by Artspeak owned by Janna Lee Rucker and trained by Magee.
Lakota Law (Dean Magee, $3.00) picked up her fourth straight win when she hit the line in a 1:55.1 dead heat with Velocity Layla (Tim Maier, $3.80) in the Tuesday finale. It was a seasonal mark for Lakota Law, who is owned by Troshu Racing and trained by Ariel Alvarez.
Nat A Cam (Dean Magee, $3.40) notched another win for 99-year-old owner Keith ‘Dudley’ Carey, pacing to a new career mark of 1:55.3 for her 14th career win. The 4-year-old daughter of Millionaire Cam is trained by Justin Anfinson.
