Classic Ramona draws off in Indiana Stallion

EmailClassic Ramona, a daughter of the stakes-winning dam Ramona's Rose, made her debut a winning one in the $45,000 Indiana Stallion Stakes at Hoosier Park.

Settling in fifth early under jockey Mathieu Adam, Classic Ramona steadily advanced around the turn, collared the leaders inside the final furlong, and drew off to a 1 1/2-length win.

Classic Ramona paid $9.60 as the second wagering choice in the field of six. Dr. Power, who held a brief lead in the stretch, finished second, two lengths clear of 1-2 favorite Rachel Wiggles, who had nothing left after setting a moderate pace.

Owned by co-breeder Larry Dean and trained by David Paulus, Classic Ramona covered six furlongs over a fast track in 1:15.15.
