Breed them to run... Breed them to win

Add Saudi Arabia to List of Two Step Salsa Winning Venues


Two more maiden winners for red-hot Two Step Salsa, one in the most unlikely of places, making it 48 for the year.

Charisma became the fourth 2-year-old winner for her sire, scoring at King Khaled Racecourse in Taif, Saudi Arabia on Aug. 4, and earning a purse of $5,332. At Thistledown yesterday, Flying Emerald was bumped at the start and got off last racing 5 1/2 furlongs, but rallied on the rail with Walter De La Cruz and rolled to a 3 3/4-length victory. The 3-year-old filly was bred by Get Away Farm.
