No Explaining holds off Sagamore's Shared Account

May 21, 2011|By Sun Staff reports

No Explaining came off the rail to win the $100,000 Omnilife Gallorette Handicap on the turf.

Shared Account, who last year pulled off the biggest upset in the history of the Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Turf, closed from off the pace but ultimately finished fourth in her 2011 debut. Owned by Under Armour founder Kevin Plank (Sagamore Farms) and trained by Graham Motion., she gave up 10-13 pounds.

John Velazquez got another win aboard No Explaining, who paid $8.80.

“It was a perfect trip,” he said. “There were a couple of speedy horses in there and I had to bide my time thinking that the good horses are coming from behind anyway. At the quarter pole, I put her in the clear and she put in a good fight. She was much better today than when I rode her last year definitely. She was more professional, more willing to do it and handled the track much better.”
