Thoroughbred Safe Trip Beats Quarter Horses In Fine Loom

Amanda Greer

            RUIDOSO DOWNS, New Mexico (May 24, 2014) – MCM Racing, LLC’s Safe Trip, the only thoroughbred in the eight-horse field, split horses racing through the stretch to win the $30,000 Fine Loom Handicap over 870 yards on Saturday at Ruidoso Downs.

            Safe Trip was timed in :46.220 with Casey Lambert aboard.

            Whiteface Eagle was two lengths back in second and Im Royal Quick finished third, another one-half length back.

            As expected, Safe Trip was well behind the quick quarter horses and then began his move entering the stretch. The seven-year-old gelding by Tale Of The Cat boldly moved between rivals in the stretch to score his second-straight win and third victory in his latest four outs.

            The Weston Martin-trained Safe Trip came off a track-record-setting victory over 1,000 yards at Sunland Park. He drew out to a six-length win in :50.96 as the 17-10 favorite in the $35,075 allowance race. He also won a $35,225 allowance race over 1,000 yards back in December at Sunland Park.

            Runner-up Whiteface Eagle came off a fifth-place finish in the $50,000 Red Cell Sunland Park Distance Challenge.

            Third-place finisher Im Royal Quick won a $25,000 optional-claiming race at Sunland Park in March.
