Streaking Rightbyu goes for 5


AUBURN, Wash. - Rightbyu will attempt to become the first horse to win five races at the Emerald Downs meeting when she takes on eight tough rivals in Saturday's best race, a 6 1/2-furlong test for older fillies and mares eligible to be claimed for $32,000 to $25,000.

Rightbyu is the only contestant entered for the lesser tag, and as a consequence she will carry low-weight of 116 pounds with regular rider Sandi Gann up.

Rightbyu, a 4-year-old daughter of Flying Chevron, was claimed by trainer Roy Lumm for $3,200 at Golden Gate at February. She won for a tag of $6,250 before shipping to Emerald, where she won for $8,000 and $12,500 before running second for a $20,000 claiming price. She scored again for $16,000, then posted her fifth win in her last six outings in her most recent appearance on June 15, when she beat $25,000 company with six furlongs in 1:10.

Among Rightbyu's most formidable foes on Saturday are Premo Copy and Exclusive Molly, who defeated $32,000 company with 6 1/2 furlongs in 1:16.20 last out on May 24.

Premo Copy, who was stakes placed here last season at 3, is dropping and shortening up after running fourth in an exceptionally strong $50,000 optional claiming race at a mile on May 26. Silver Screen Girl won that race with Strikes No Spares second and Tamarack Bay third, and those three came back to run one-two-three in last Saturday's King County Handicap. Prior to that race, Premo Copy twice finished second while sprinting at the $40,000 optional claiming level.
