Smoke Glacken's newest stakes winner Report Card was ultra-sharp in his 4 1/4-length win in Saturday's $125,000 Land of Lincoln S. at Hawthorne Racecourse. The 3-year-old is the fourth stakes horse of 2012 for his sire, who will be represented in the May 4 Kentucky Oaks (G1) by top contender On Fire Baby.
Report Card came into the six furlong Land of Lincoln with a three-race winning streak, but was making just his second start of 2012. The gray sophomore sped right out of the gate to assume the lead by 1 1/2-lengths after a quarter mile. He continued to dictate the pace the rest of the way, leaving the field behind in the stretch to get the distance in 1:11.22 on a fast track.
Bred in Illinois by his owner Richard Glander, Report Card has now won four of five lifetime starts, earning $140,725. He is the first foal out of Little Boot, who also bankrolled over $100,000 in her career.
