Change gives Gala Goldilocks a fairy tale finish at Pimlico

September 21, 1991|By Marty McGee HC

Gala Goldilocks led all the way to win the $26,000 feature at Pimlico Race Course yesterday.

The filly-mare event was scheduled to be run on the turf course, but soggy conditions forced a move to the main track. Gala Goldilocks, a 3-year-old filly, was the obvious beneficiary, as she led throughout as a solid favorite.

Gaylord's Annie closed late to finish second, beaten by two lengths, but at no point was Gala Goldilocks' lead in serious jeopardy.

After finishing the 1 1/16-mile distance in 1 minute, 45 seconds, Gala Goldilocks paid $4.20 to win and led off an exacta worth $8.60.
