Beulah Park: School Lass scores as favorite in Royal North


GROVE CITY, Ohio - School Lass took advantage of a ground-saving trip under jockey Jake Radosevich to win the $50,000 Royal North at Beulah Park on Saturday.

Radosevich, collecting his first stakes win,  kept School Lass ($3.60), a  daughter of Private School,  along the rail in the six- furlong Royal North before asking her for run on the turn and she responded, getting through along the rail and dueling with second-place finisher Startin Something.

Trained by Mark Thomas, School Lass drew off late to win by 3 ¾ lengths, going away. Holleran was a head behind Startin Something in third. T

The Tim Hamm trained entry of Startin Something, Juju Bling and So So Smart finished second, fourth, and fifth, respectively, as the 6-5 second choice in a field of eight Ohio-bred 3-year-old fillies, but just five betting interests..

School Lass ran the six furlongs in 1.11.41.
