Indiana Downs: Eskimo's Best repeats in Florence Henderson


Eskimo's Best needed the entire Indiana Downs turf course stretch, but she got up to win her second consecutive Florence Henderson Tuesday evening.

Trained by Richard Kohnhorst, Eskimo's Best pressed the pace under Victor Lebron in the 1 1/16-mile race for Indiana-bred fillies and mares. She edged past Whistlin Jean late to win the $87,550 race by a neck. Whistlin Jean was second, 1 1/2 lengths in front of Dr. Powers in third.

A 5-year-old daughter of Best of Luck, Eskimo's Best returned $4.40 and ran the distance in 1:44.88.
