Thistledown: Startin Something begins meet with a stakes win


Startin Something made her season debut a winning one by closing three-wide  from just off the leaders to make the lead inside the eighth pole and draw clear by 1 3/4 lengths over School Lass in the $50,000, six furlong, Dr. T.F. Classen Memorial here on Friday, opening day of the Thistledown season.

It was two lengths further back to Gathering Dreams who closed four wide.

A 4-year-old Ohio-bred filly owned by Blazing Meadows Farm LLC and Top Notch Racing Partnership, Startin Something, trained by Timothy Hamm, covered the six furlongs in 1:11.74 under jockey Scott Spieth and returned $5.40.
