Email

No Such Word outgamed Havre de Grace in the $75,000 Go for Wand at Delaware Park on Saturday.

The Go for Wand, a 1 1/16-mile race for 3-year-old fillies, turned into a two-filly race down the stretch. Havre de Grace took a short lead under Jeremy Rose, but No Such Word and Terry Thompson pulled even in early stretch and the two battled to the wire. No Such Word, the 3-5 favorite, edged Havre de Grace, sent off at 9-5, by a neck in 1:46.11. Hot Trip finished third in the five-horse field, another six lengths farther back.
