Thor's Daughter upsets Ohio Valley


Thor's Daughter, the longest shot in a five-horse field, drew off in the stretch of Tuesday night's $75,000 Ohio Valley Handicap at Mountaineer Racetrack to win by 3o1/2 lengths.

Trained by Tim Schuh and ridden by Oswald Pereira, Thor's Daughter was patiently handled early in the six-furlong race as 2-1 second choice High Heritage opened up a three-length advantage on the field. Thor's Daughter launched her bid wide on the turn, and then drew off after collaring 8-5 favorite Pola's Place in midstretch.

Thor's Daughter was timed in 1:12.95 and paid $21.20 to win and $6.80 to place. Show wagering was not offered on the race. South Atlantic bested Pola's Place by a head for second.

The win was the fourth from 14 career starts for Thor's Daughter, a 5-year-old Tiznow mare. She entered the race off a 4 1/2-length Mountaineer allowance win.
