Sandstone Sensational In Rags To Riches At Churchill Downs

On a card focused on the stars of tomorrow, Sandstone showed she is one to watch with her multi-length win in the Rags to Riches at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Ky. The daughter of Street Sense showed a stunning turn of foot, pulling away from a challenging Yuugiri with ease to earn her second career win and her first stakes.

In a short field of four, Sandstone went straight to the lead, putting a length between her and Yuugiri around the first turn. She maintained that lead down the backstretch, with Yuugiri mounting her challenge around the far turn.

Tyler Gaffalione and Yuugiri pulled within a head of Sandstone on the turn, hitting the stretch nearly even with Sandstone. Under the Twin Spires, Yuugiri got her nose in front briefly, but Sandstone rallied on her inside, finding another gear and kicking away easily. At the wire, Sandstone was 10 3/4 lengths in front, with Yuugiri, Mama Rina, and Manasota Sunset rounding out the order of finish.

The final time for the 1 1/16 miles was 1:44.18. Find this race’s chart here.

Sandstone paid $7.40, $3.00, and $2.10. Yuugiri paid $2.20 and $2.10. Mama Rina paid $2.10.
