Hastings: Racing for Gold prevails by neck in CTHS Sales Stakes


VANCOUVER, British Columbia – Racing for Gold rallied to edge longshot Tempered Sapphire by a neck in the $50,000 Canadian Thoroughbred Horse  Society  Sales Stakes for 3-year-old fillies at Hastings on Saturday. She paid $6  for her narrow win in the 1 1/16-mile feature.

Heavily favored Dance the Wind came from well back to finish third, another neck behind Tempered Sapphire.

Ridden by leading rider Amadeo Perez, Racing for Gold saved ground early while sitting mid-pack. She went four-wide around the stretch turn and stayed in the middle of the track while making her winning move in the stretch.

The final time was 1:46.59.

Racing for Gold is trained by Phil Hall.
