Amanda Lynn looks good off last

EmailAUBURN, Wash. – Trainer Roy Lumm has made some successful claims this meet, notably win-machine Victory Script and Military Deputy, the champion of the Emerald Downs marathon series. Amanda Lynn can join the list on Thursday when she faces five other fillies and mares, all going for a $15,000 claiming price, in the one-mile feature.

Lumm's Blue Diamond Stable and partners Richard Ford and Linda Henson claimed Amanda Lynn, a 6-year-old daughter of Jaggery John, out of a win over $5,000 claimers at 5 1/2 furlongs in her season debut on June 21. Amanda Lynn has since run twice at the $15,000 level, finishing sixth at 5 1/2 furlongs and second to Miss Fast Dancer at a mile on Aug. 19. Off that effort she rates a strong chance Thursday.

Macario Rodriguez will ride.

Amanda Lynn's stiffest opposition might be Parioli's Legacy, from the barn of trainer Joe Toye. Parioli's Legacy had two very sharp efforts at a mile against $20,000 claimers, finishing first by 1 1/4 lengths and second by a neck, before running eighth under the same conditions last out on Aug. 10. But she has four fast workouts since, and will be reunited with her winning jockey, Gallyn Mitchell.

Also a threat is White Center Belle, who won under Thursday's conditions in May and is currently on an upswing. In her last four races, all at a mile against $15,000 claimers, White Center Belle has run sixth, fifth, fourth, and third.
