Go Ask Alex sets Indiana Downs record


Go Ask Alex got a rail-skimming ride under jockey Jon Court and drew off to win the $100,000 Indiana Downs Distaff at Indiana Downs in track record time on Wednesday.

Trained by John Glenney, Go Ask Alex led from start to finish in the one-mile turf event and drew off to win by 7 1/4 lengths. Helen Belen, under Sal Gonzalez Jr., chased the winner from the outside to no avail and tired to finish third, while Prima Donna Pirate inherited the place position.

Go Ask Alex ran the mile in 1:34.55 over the firm turf course and returned $5.20 to win.
