Oak Tree: Guess who finished 2nd?


For the sixth consecutive race, Pink Diamond finished second in an allowance race or optional claimer for turf sprinters in Sunday's third race.

Typical of the 5-year-old mare's recent races, she rallied wide through the stretch, looked like a winner but finished a head behind Flashy Traveler, who ran six furlongs on turf in 1:09.69.

Pink Diamond's losing streak began in July after she was claimed for $8,000 here in June. She has earned $57,000 since being claimed. She is trained by Marcelo Polanco. During her string of seconds, she has been beaten at distances ranging from a nose to a length.
