Bella El Milagro Vaults Poseidon’s Warrior Over $200,000
Poseidon’s Warrior surpassed the $200,000 mark in progeny earnings after the game, come-from-behind victory of Bella El Milagro at Parx Racing yesterday. In her previous start, while looking for her maiden score, the 3-year-old filly was nailed at the wire after leading every step of the way. But Frankie Pennington changed the tactics for this one, with Bella El Milagro sitting a stalking third down the backstretch in the 5 1/2-furlong race contested over a track labeled “good.” Pennington swung her three wide into the stretch and Bella El Milagro wore down the leaders, getting up at the wire by a head in a three-horse photo. The filly bred by Moreau Bloodstock picked up $12,600 and now sports a record of 1-2-0-2 in five starts. Poseidon’s Warrior leads Florida’s second-crop sire list with earnings of $201,780.
