Go Go triumphs in Great Lady M.


INGLEWOOD, Calif. - Erasing doubts about her current form, Go Go won the sixth stakes of her career in Sunday's $91,925 Great Lady M. Handicap for fillies and mares at Hollywood Park.

The victory ended a three-race losing streak for Go Go, who has won 9 of 18 starts and $616,565 for owners Paula, Alan and Roger Thomas and trainer Warren Stute.

The 5-year-old Go Go was ridden by Matt Garcia, a replacement for Eddie Delahoussaye who missed his rides on Sunday for the fifth consecutive day due to an infection that caused facial swelling.

Go Go ($5) broke slowly but was quickly in second, stalking Dyna's Club, who set fractions of 22.83 and 44.67. Go Go raced outside of Dyna's Club and took the lead turning for home.

"I had a lot of horse left," Garcia said. "I was comfortable and was very confident."

The two fillies pulled clear in the final furlong with Go Go winning by a neck after 5 1-2 furlongs on turf in 1:01.99. Brocky's Dream, the longest shot in the field at 46-1, finished third.

The Great Lady M. Handicap was Go Go's first stakes win since the Grade 2 A Gleam Handicap in July 2001. She lost once at Del Mar last year and in two stakes earlier at this meeting before Sunday's victory.
