Trainer Philip D'Amato had his first winner on Friday when Zippin E won the first race for $10,500 to $12,500 claimers by 13 1-4 lengths over Ellie L.

D'Amato is normally the assistant to trainer Mike Mitchell, who is currently suspended for a medication violation. Zippin E was D'Amato's second starter. 

Zippin E ($2.60) ran 1 1-16 miles in 1:45.34, winning her second consecutive race. She won a maiden claimer on Nov. 18.
