Yawm Estoora looks to rebound

Email

Yawm Estoora, upset winner of the June 27 Larkspur Handicap, will try to add the $20,000 Moonbeam Handicap to her resume at Pinnacle Race Course. The Moonbeam, at a mile, is the seventh of eight races on the 2:30 p.m. card and attracted six Michigan-bred fillies and mares.

Ron Inman trains Yawm Estoora for Twin Cedars Farm and will again employ Angel Stanley as the rider. Stanley won twice aboard Yawm Estoora at the meet before running fourth in an allowance race July 7. She likes the surface here, having won 4 of 7 starts over the track, and will have her blinkers removed for the Moonbeam. She gets in at 115 pounds.

Leading trainer Robert Gorham has the favored entry of She Could Be Good and Irish Date. She Could Be Good had a win here before she was fifth, beaten five lengths in the Larkspur. She won her next start over Regret Stakes winner Peak of the Storm, earning a 66 Beyer Speed Figure. Regular rider Jeffrey Skerrett will ride She Could Be Good.

Irish Date, a recent claiming winner, will be ridden by Godofredo Laurente.

Wave Pool, the champion 3-year-old filly in Michigan last year after winning the Michigan Sire and Regret stakes, will represent Pinnacle CEO and chairman Felicia Campbell. Leading rider Freddie Mata will ride for trainer Ronnie Allen.

Past champion Nell's Enjoyment, sixth in the Larkspur in her only local start this year, will be asked to carry high weight of 118 pounds in the Moonbeam. Trainer Shane Spiess also is the owner and breeder. J.J. Delgado will ride.

Silent Sunset, fourth in last year's Moonbeam, rounds out the field. She is a homebred who races for trainer Joe Lewis and his wife Diane. Augusto Marin has the call.
