ROUNDUP : Hatoof Upsets Flawlessly in the Beverly D

August 28, 1994|From Associated Press

Hatoof, a 5-year-old French mare, surged from seventh place to defeat defending champion Flawlessly by a half-length and win the $500,000 Beverly D at Arlington International Racecourse on Saturday.

"This was very special," said Walter Swinburn, Hatoof's jockey. "I wasn't worried when we were sitting back behind the leaders. She's a special mare. I let her run the race herself."

Christiane Head, who became the first female trainer to win the Beverly D, said, "Hatoof is a mare that likes to go her own way." Head is the eldest of three daughters of French trainer and breeder Alec Head.

Hatoof paid $7.80, $4.40 and $3.40 and was timed in 1:55 2/5 for the 1 3/16 miles on turf. She earned $300,000 to increase her earnings to nearly $1.5 million for owner Maktoum Al Maktoum of Dubai.

Colonial Affair, ridden by Jose Santos, covered the 1 1/8 miles in 1:48 3/5 and paid $19.60, $7.60 and $5.20. Devil His Due, top-weighted at 125 pounds and ridden by Mike Smith, returned $4 and $2.80. West By West, ridden by Pat Day, paid $3.80.
