Kylers Midge wins Tellike Handicap


Carencro, La - Kylers Midge stalked pacesetter Light Fling then drew clear of that one through the stretch to win Saturday night's Tellike Handicap by two and a half lengths. Light Fling held the place comfortably and was followed by Power of Dreams. 5-2 favorite Sea Bloom, fractious prior to loading into the gate, staged a steady retreat to finish seventh and last in the field of fillies and mares.

Ridden by Mario Reyes, Kylers Midge ($11.40) covered six furlongs in 1:11.20 over a fast strip. She is owned by James Hutzel, trained by David Baker and was the starting highweight at 119 pounds. The victory was the 13th of her career from only 28 starts. Her career bankroll now stands at just over $221,000.
