L. Henry Gissel, Jr. Race of the Yearlings – April 21 Derby Update
Derby Update – April 21, 2021
All five jockeys have run the track once and are on their way around again! By barely a nose, Benetta Park on BeastNoRest has stolen the lead once again from The Patriot Gissel, ridden by jockey Lora Davis. These fillies are burning up the track and you will want to watch this race closely as these two are in close contention. We may have a photo finish on Monday, May 3 as Illinois and Texas battle it out.
Buddy B. Inclusive has leaped into third place and is gaining fast on the fillies! Florida Fellows stepped up to move their state’s favorite jockey, Charlie Nash, forward. Alan Rothschild on Peach State Pony is barely a length behind Nash and is gaining fast! Fellows of Florida and Georgia – who will make sure their jockey is in third?
