Pimlico: John's Call off the board


La Reine's Terms ($49.40) improved his record to 4 for 5 over Pimlico's turf course when he defeated eight other older horses in the $97,000 Bald Eagle Breeders' Cup Handicap.

John's Call, the 6-5 favorite, never fired after racing in midpack in the one-mile turf race, finishing seventh under Jean-Luc Samyn. A multiple Grade 1-winning earner of nearly $1.6 million, the 10-year-old John's Call was receiving Lasix for the first time after having bled at Saratoga in his last start.
