Well-bred Tether to Reality impresses in debut


OLDSMAR, Fla. – Tether to Reality has the pedigree to be a star, but his connections had to wait a long while before the gelding could strut his stuff. That day finally came last Friday, when the 5-year-old son of Harlan’s Holiday made his career debut at Tampa Bay Downs in a $20,000 maiden special weight race, winning the six-furlong sprint by 3 1/2 lengths and stopping the clock in a snappy 1:10.81. He earned a 79 Beyer Speed Figure for the effort.
