Kiosk coming off strong second at Galbreath distance

Email

GROVE CITY, Ohio - Kiosk heads a field of 10 Ohio-bred-2-year-old fillies, all of whom are in search of their first stakes win, in Sunday's $50,000 John W. Galbreath Memorial Stakes at Beulah Park.

Kiosk enters the Galbreath off a strong second-place finish in the $75,000 Best of Ohio Juvenile Fillies, which was run at Thistledown at Sunday's 1 1/16-mile distance. Kiosk, a daughter of Left Banker, has shown improvement since being stretched out around two turns in September, finishing second twice for trainer Tim Hamm.

Overall, Kiosk sports a record of 1-2-2 from eight starts for Hamm, who co-owns the filly with Bruce Ryan. Felipe Santos, who has been aboard Kiosk in her past two starts, will be in for the mount.

Lady Delphinus and the Albert Palacios-trained entry of White-water Way and Orangeberry, the third-, fourth-, and fifth-place finishers in the Best of Ohio Juvenile Fillies last out are all capable of upsetting Kiosk on Sunday.

Lady Delphinus rallied to finish third, beaten three lengths, in the Best of Ohio at 99-1 in the best performance of her career for trainer Susan Anderson. Jockey Ivan Gonzalaz has a return call.

Whitewater Way had a troubled trip in the Best of Ohio. After checking on the first turn and falling far back early, she rallied through the stretch to gain fourth, beaten five lengths. Perry Ouzts will ride Whitewater Way, a late-running daughter of Skip Away.

Orangeberry should be much closer to the pace than her stablemate on Sunday under regular rider Hector Rosario Jr. A stakes-placed daughter of Cryptoclear-ance, she figures to work out a good stalking trip from her rail post position.
