Passing up Oaklawn stakes pays off for jockey Seefeldt

April 18, 1994|By Ross Peddicord

Andrea Seefeldt had a chance to ride a filly named Worth Every Penny in the $250,000 Fantasy Stakes yesterday at Oaklawn Park.

Instead, she flew home to Maryland and won the $35,000-added Smart Halo Stakes at Pimlico Race Course on Platinum Punch, a 3-year-old filly trained by her brother, Paul, and owned by partners Larry Wolf and Randy Brooks.

Seefeldt, who has won six stakes this year, is back in Maryland for the rest of 1994 after spending the winter at Oaklawn.

Even though it was tempting to ride in the Fantasy, Seefeldt made the right choice. Worth Every Penny finished off the board in the Arkansas race.
