Retama: Wishingitwas equals course record


Wishingitwas ($12.80) withstood a claim of stretch interference from the rider of second-place finisher Agrivating General to win the $35,000 No Le Hace Stakes at Retama Park on Saturday night. Dance and Dazzle finished third in the 7 1/2-furlong turf race that served as the final stakes race of the meet at Retama.

Wishingitwas rallied from well back to overtake Agrivating General by three-quarters of a length, and equaled the course record for the distance when he completed the No Le Hace in 1:28.44. Terry Stanton rode the winner for owner-trainer Bart Evans.
