Breed them to run... Breed them to win

$150,000 Drill Filly Scores at Laurel Park


Destiny Over Fate collected a juicy $31,122 check yesterday for owner Ron Paolucci, winning a $53,088 allowance optional claimer at Laurel Park.

Alex Cintron had the 3-year-old daughter of Drill tucked in nicely on the rail behind pacesetter Golden Gala from the outset, but a slew of rivals to her outside kept Destiny Over Fate in a box all the way down the backstretch of the 1 1/16-mile race. As the field turned for home, Cintron was able to swing off the rail and went after Golden Gala, running her down in the last sixteenth to score by three-quarters of a length.

Bred in Maryland by Best A Luck Farm, Destiny Over Fate was a $150,000 OBS April 2-year-old and her second victory boosted her earnings to $65,011.
