No Brakes makes long run to win Deputed Testamony Starter Handicap

May 21, 2011|By Sun Staff reports

Katherine Sancuk's No Brakes rallied from next to last to win $25,000 Deputed Testamony Starter Handicap, the first of nine stakes on Preakness Day.

Xavier Perez rode the 6-year-old gelding, who finished fifth in the race last year and was claimed for $5,000 by his present connections in March, pulled ahead near the 16th marker and narrowly beat Money For Love to the finish.

"I claimed this horse specifically for this race," said Sancuk, the owner and trainer. "He runs hard every time. He gives you a heart attack because he was so far out of it. It scared me to death."
