Cor Cor equals track record in OBS Sprint stakes


Monday, March 11, 2013 |
Smoke Glacken's speedy 3-year-old filly Cor Cor rolled to a 4 3/4-length victory in the $50,000 OBS Sprint S. Monday at the Ocala Day of Champions, giving the bay filly the third stakes win of her young career.

Smoke Glacken is also the sire of the ultra-fast 6-year-old sprinter Delaunay, who is riding a five-race winning streak, most recently in the $150,000 Duncan F. Kenner S. March 9 at Fair Grounds, where he heated up the track to the tune of 1:08.36 for the six furlongs.

Owned by Steve Ballou and Harriet Waldron, Cor Cor, supplemented to the race and trained by Joan Scott, burst out of the gate at the break to a big lead, set blistering fractions yet still managed to increase her margin for the entire trip. The final time of 1:09 3/5 equaled the track record for six furlongs.

Cor Cor, bred in Florida by Francis and Barbara Vanlangendonck, was sold by Southern Chase Farm, Inc. (Greg & Karen Dodd), Agent, at the 2012 OBS June Sale. She’s now 4-1-0 in just five starts and has earned $165,800. Her other stakes wins came in the $74,000 Battle of New Orleans S. Feb. 2 at Fair Grounds, and the $68,000 Sandpiper S. Dec. 1 at Tampa Bay Downs.
