Another milestone: First winner for Anthony’s Cross

Anthony’s Cross became the fourth of Pleasant Acres’ five freshman stallions to get his first winner when Crossed proved to be a ton the best yesterday in a $33,000 maiden special at Indiana Grand Race Course. The Indiana-bred filly had been working well for her debut and was pegged at 2-1 on the tote board in the five-furlong race. With Jose Riquelme aboard, Crossed came out running from the No. 4 post and made every pole a winning one. When Three Spokes Up made her move on the turn, Crossed turned it up several notches and left the 4/5 favorite in her dust, drawing off by nearly six lengths in the lane. The filly’s owner/breeder, Just For Fun Stable, collected $19,800 for the score.
