Breed them to run... Breed them to win

Drill Gains Fifth Winner, Ties for Frosh Lead


Return the Favor went wire-to-wire to capture the fifth race at Gulfstream Park yesterday, becoming the fifth winner for Drill, which tied the son of Lawyer Ron for first place on Florida's freshman sire list. It was a family affair for the Maraghs since Return the Favor is owned by Rajkamal Maragh, trained by Allen Maragh, and was ridden by Romero Maragh.

The 2-year-old filly had prepped for her maiden score with a third-place finish in her previous start, but this time she never let anybody get close, cruising to the wire to win by four lengths. The OBS October yearling collected $11,600 for the victory.
