Sondra Bender's Tam's Terms extended his perfect turf record to 4-for-4 with a 2 3/4 -length victory in yesterday's $75,000 Henry S. Clark Stakes at Pimlico Race Course.
Trained by Larry Murray and ridden by Horacio Karamanos, Tam's Terms tracked, caught and put away front-running favorite Glick in the 1-mile test. He completed the distance in 1 minute, 36.41 seconds over a firm course.
Glick finished second, and Run To Victory rallied to be a distant third.
"We were racing in good position behind the horse on the lead," Karamanos said. "I could feel I had a lot of horse under me, and when I sent him, he responded. This is a very nice horse. He could be really special down the road."
This was Tam's Terms first start of the year and his first added-money victory. The Private Terms colt had only won his maiden race before Murray switched him to the turf here last spring. Then he won non-winners of one, two and three allowance tests in succession.
"He's been training really well. He went wrong on us last year after his last race," Murray said. "We never quite figured out what was wrong, so we just stopped on him, gave him three months off and started from scratch. Whatever it was, it healed itself."
