Turfway Park: Request for Parole by a nose


Request for Parole and Perfect Drift showed their dominance over Turfway-based 3-year-olds with another 1-2 finish, this time in the $100,000 . Request for Parole edged out Perfect Drift by a nose in the 1 1/16-mile race over a sloppy track. Thunder on Land was third, nearly 14 lengths behind the top pair.

Request for Parole ($3.40), who also finished ahead of Perfect Drift in the WEBN Frog in their previous start, won his third stakes in the Battaglia, the final local prep for the Lane's End Spiral on March 23. Ridden by Brian Peck, Request for Parole ran a final time of 1:43.08. He has now earned over $290,000 for owners Jeri and Sam Knighton and trainer Stephen Margolis.
