Glenco Kid rallies strongly under Richard Hamel to score by a half-length in the Lost in the Fog Juvenile.

PHOENIX  – Glenco Kid, a stakes winner at Hastings and coming off a stakes try at Betfair at Hollywood Park, appreciated the change in class altitude as the 2-year-old rallied smartly to capture Saturday’s $35,000 Lost in the Fog Juvenile at Turf Paradise.

Owned by Mark Dedomenico and North American Thoroughbred Racing Inc. and trained by Sandi Gann, Glenco Kid sat well back early in the 6 1/2-furlong event for 2-year-old males under Richard Hamel, was still well back turning for home but surged late to get up for the half-length win. Hazardous, the Southern California invader who was sent off the 9-5 favorite, was behind the eventual winner early, moved earlier with a very wide run to reach contention, and looked like the winner until Glenco Kid stormed by late. Red Zeus stalked and finished third in the field of 11.

Glenco Kid, a son of Repent,  ran the 6 1/2 furlongs in 1:16.82 and paid $11.60. The winner’s share of $20,398 gives him earnings of $94,730 from 3 wins in 6 starts.

Set’n on Ready was true to her name as the daughter of More Than Ready roared  into the lane after a slow start to easily win the $35,000 Arizona Juvenile Fillies.

Owned by Tom Ramsey and trained by Molly Pearson, the 2-year-old Set’n on Ready  broke poorly under Juan Ochoa, but after biding her time put in a strong rally to surge past the leaders and win going away by 2 3/4 lengths.

 Hyena, the 9-5 favorite, sat back and had to wait for room into the lane and finished well once clear but was no match for the winner while getting second. Mo’s Teresa stalked, took the lead into the lane but couldn’t sustain her run, finishing third in the field of 11 juvenile fillies.

Set’n on Ready ran the 6 1/2 furlongs in 1:17.52 and paid $17. The winner’s share of $20,398 pushes her earnings to $55,407 from 3 wins in 9 starts.
