Tesio top 2 to enter Woodlawn Stakes

May 02, 1994|By Ross Peddicord | Ross Peddicord,Sun Staff Writer

The top two finishers in the recent Federico Tesio Stakes -- winner Silver Profile and runner-up Takeit- likeaman -- are expected to run Saturday in the Woodlawn Stakes at Pimlico Race Course.

The $75,000 race for 3-year-olds at 1 1/16 miles on the grass is the main live race on the Pimlico card, which also features the simulcast of the Kentucky Derby.

Vinnie Blengs, owner-trainer of Silver Profile, said he plans to run the colt, which he purchased for $15,000 last year in Florida, in the race.

John Myers, trainer of Takeitlikeaman, also will enter his colt. Myers' horse finished third in the Tesio, but was moved up to second when the original runner-up, Looming, was disqualified and placed last.

If Takeitlikeaman runs well in the Woodlawn, Myers hopes to run him in the Jersey Derby.

Blengs finished second at Pimlico yesterday in the $35,000 Searching Stakes with the 5-year-old mare, P. J. Floral, who was beaten by 1 1/2 lengths by Hopeful Stable III's Circus Music.

Mark Johnston, second in the Pimlico standings behind Edgar Prado, was aboard Circus Music, who is trained by Barclay Tagg.

One fan at Pimlico cashed a ticket worth $38,460.90 by winning the Double Triple, correctly picking the first three finishers in the third and fifth races.
