Keeneland: Wasted Tears upsets Forever Together in the Jenny Wiley

Email

Forever Together, under a perfect stalking trip under Julien Leparoux, appeared poised to score a victory when surging in the stretch in the Grade 2 Jenny Wiley Stakes.

The only the problem...Wasted Tears, the early leader, never let her past.

Forever Together closed from fifth to pull on early even terms with the winner with about 70 yards remaining, but the Wasted Tears turned her back to score a frontrunning victory at 9-2 odds.

Aided by a relatively soft and easy pace under Rajiv Maragh, Wasted Tears had plenty left for the stretch run, racing 1 1/16 miles on a firm turf course in 1:40.86. She paid $11.60, giving owner-trainer Bart Evans one of the biggest wins of his career.
