Beauty and Glory seems a cut above


WINNIPEG, Manitoba - Beauty and Glory, the only multiple winner in the field, will likely be favored Saturday at Assiniboia Downs in the $40,000 R.C. Anderson at a mile. Of the eight Manitoba-bred 3-year-old fillies in the race, only one other has even won a race.

Beauty and Glory has won two of four starts. Owned by K-5 Stable, Beauty and Glory won a maiden special weight race on May 2 to begin her season. She then was fourth behind the highly regarded Lt. Regent in her first start against winners before winning a first-level allowance in her most recent start.

One of two in the field trained by Tanya Lindsay, Beauty and Glory will break from post 7 with Tim Matteucci in the irons.

Sampo's Fool, the field's other winner, has failed to beat a horse in two starts this year and likely will be a longshot. Trained by Guy Kling, Sampo's Fool won the restricted CTHS Sales Stakes here last season. Vince Guerra will ride Sampo's Fool, who begins from post 1.

Jazzy Express, trained by Richard Hollett, finished second behind Beauty and Glory in her career debut here May 2 and was a runner-up again in a maiden special last time out. Jazzy Express starts from post 2 with Jason Leacock on board.

Periquita finished third behind second-place Jazzy Express in her only start. Trained by Harry Kube, Perquita breaks from post 6 with Travis Hightower up.
