Maserati shows plenty of horsepower in Queens Cup

He may not be able to go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 10 seconds, but Amy Taylor Rowe's Maserati proved to be a sleek and speedy sports car in Saturday's $75,000 Queens Cup Novice Hurdle Stakes at Mineral Springs, N.C. Ridden by Rhys Flint of the UK and trained by Leslie Young, the nearly black, Brazilian-bred son of Point Given rallied to take the race by 3 lengths over Joseph Fowler's French-bred Express Line, another potential star, and Jacqueline Ohrstrom's Class Cherokee. Flint, Taylor-Rowe, and Young combined to win the flat-race finale, too, with Director, a 4-year-old by Danehill Dancer. Other winners on the card include Northwoods Stable's Causeworthy, who captured the $30,000 Sport of Kings maiden by 3 for jockey Sean McDermott and trainer Jack Fisher. George Mahoney's Long House Saint reversed some back-luck performances with a determined 5-length tally over pacesetter King Ting in the $25,000 Ratings Handicap for Michael Byrne and trainer Ricky Hendriks. Another horse that turned the tables on misfortune was Waterbaby Racing's Class Indian. The gray, trained by Ted Thompson and ridder by Gus Dahl, fell while leading over the last in the 2015 running of the Queens Cup timber allowance, and took out part of the fence at the last once again. But this time, Class Indian stayed on his feet and sprinted home a length and a quarter ahead of Achsah O'Donovan's West Is Best, a contender throughout. Tod Marks was in Mineral Springs and has the photo recap - tm
