Beulah: Slight edge to Tommeyesgold


Eight Ohio-accredited 2-year-old fillies, each seeking a first stakes victory, will go a mile in the $40,000 Glacial Princess Stakes at Beulah Park.

Three maidens are entered in the Glacial Princess, named after an Ohio champion mare who died on the track here and is buried near the infield tote board. The other five entrants all have just one victory.

Tommeyesgold and Mercy seem the most qualified to win as the only stakes-placed runners in the field.

Tommeyesgold has finished on the board in three stakes this year, including a close third in her most recent start. That race, the 1 1/16-mile Galbreath Memorial, run here on Oct. 1, marked Tommeyesgold's first try around two turns and she put in a game effort in losing by only three-quarters of a length.

Ivan Vazquez trains Tommeyesgold for her owner-breeder Eugene Daniels. Vazquez has named Ivan Gonzalez to ride.

Mercy, who is coupled in the wagering with Jonmarie's Gold for trainer Tim Hamm, finished in front of Tommeyesgold when second in the six-furlong Emerald Necklace at Thistledown in September. She was just a head behind Tommeyesgold in the Galbreath when finishing a close fourth. Ricardo Feliciano has a return call.
