Lone Star: Race 5 Paddock Report


Wasted Tears is the current 1-2 favorite for the upcoming Grade 3, $200,000 Ouija Board Distaff and made a favorable impression in the paddock for the race. She is coming off a win over champion Forever Together in the Grade 2 Jenny Wiley.

Another good-looking runner is Fortunia, a 3-year-old filly who scratched out of the $100,000 USA later on the card in favor of this race. The USA, which is for 3-year-olds, is at a mile and a sixteenth on turf while the Ouija Board is a mile. Fortunia registered her last win at a mile, over the Lone Star couse in a first-level allowance April 23. She is bred to be a good one as a half-sister to Group 1 winner Dionisia.
