Indian Ink proves uncatchable


Indian Ink broke from the gate on top and led every step of the way to win the $50,000 Scarlet and Gray at Beulah Park on Saturday.

Trained by Mike Rone, Indian Ink ($15.60) led by as many as eight lengths in the six-furlong race and was never challenged or pressed for the lead. Jockey Perry Ouzts kept Indian Ink, a 4-year-old filly, to task in the stretch and the final margin was four lengths.

Pyrite Marci was gaining late to finish second and odds-on favorite Pay the Man finished third after failing to fire. Indian Ink ran the six furlongs over a fast track in 1:10.00. The exacta with the winner and Pyrite Marci returned $172.
