Thistledown: Startin Something scores as favorite in Dr. T.F. Classen Memorial


Startin Something prompted the quick early pace while three wide early and rallied into the stretch to win the $50,000 Dr. T.F. Classen Memorial at Thistledown on Friday afternoon.

Chosen as Ohio’s top handicap mare and Ohio-accredited female in 2012, Startin Something ($3.80) was under mild urging in the stretch under jockey Deshawn Parker to win by 2 1/2 lengths. Pacesetting Isadella settled for second under Megan Fadlovich, 2 1/4 lengths in front of I'm Kiddin in third.
