Lone Star: Wasted Tears works, Leparoux will ride in Modesty


Wasted Tears will be ridden by Julien Leparoux in the Grade 3, $150,000 Modesty at Arlington Park on July 9, said her trainer, Bart Evans. Leparoux was aboard the mare for the first time May 30, when she won the Grade 3, $200,000 Ouija Board Distaff at Lone Star.

Wasted Tears breezed for the Modesty on Thursday at Lone Star, going five furlongs in hand in 1:01.60. She was even throughout the move, which came on a fast track at about 6:15 a.m. Jockey Patrick Boxie was aboard Wasted Tears, who was to leave for Chicago on Friday.

“She knows she’s getting ready to go do something,” Evans said. “We just gave her a little work, just keeping her on the ground.”

Wasted Tears is scheduled to arrive at Arlington on Saturday, said Evans.
