Pimlico Friday Selections; Regal Nurse Eyes Rapid Redux Record

April 20, 2012 | Gary Quill

Regal Nurse ran her win-streak to eight with a dominating eight-length victory in Thursday’s ninth race at Pimlico Race Course. It was the first turf score for the daughter of Monarchos, who was recently claimed by top trainer Dane Kobiskie.

“She is turf top and bottom so I was dying to see her on the grass,” Kobiskie said. “The only thing that scared me is when you have a horse who is so good on the dirt you start second guessing yourself. But she ran big and we plan on keeping her on the grass.”

The streak began last fall with three victories at Hawthorne, the last of which where she was claimed by Jamie Ness, who brought Regal Nurse to Maryland. She won three races during the Laurel Park winter meet and another on opening weekend of the Pimlico stand, when she was claimed by Kobiskie. “I got lucky, it was a six-way shake,” added Kobiskie. “I am going to keep her in starter allowance company but she is eligible for a three-other than which is in the (condition) book next Thursday. I may give that race a shot.”

The record for most consecutive victories by a United States-based horse is 22 held by Rapid Redux, who is owned by Baltimore County resident Robert Cole. “Cole better watch out,” joked Kobiskie. “She is 100% sound and I am going to take good care of her. We will pick our spots and chase the record.”

Recapping selections from Day 11 (Thursday, April 19th) had 7 winners (4 Top Selections) having $2 Exacta in the 1st ($9.20), 3rd ($9.60), 8th ($4.40) and 9th ($9.00) races; $1 Trifectas in the 3rd ($19.60), 8th ($3.30) and 9th ($15.20) races. The BEST BET of the Day (11 5-2-0) did not disappoint, but the odds were much shorter (1-2) than the 4-1 M/L because of 3 scratches, but a win is a win, getting $3.00 to WIN, $2.10 PLACE and $2.10 SHOW. The LONGSHOT PICK (11 1-1-2) finally made it to the Winners Circle at a price excepted (8-1), returning a nice $18.00 to WIN, $7.20 PLACE and $5.00 SHOW.
