Three-Bagger....Count 'Em

No Use Denying wired a field of five on Thursday in Pimlico's eighth race. The 4-year-old daughter of Maria's Mon dominated the $32,000 Allowance Optional Claimer in a performance she'd been sitting on for a few races now.

Her last two wins bookend a trio of runner-up finishes. Under Jeremy Rose, she set splits of 24.13, 47.85 and 1:12.71 through 3/4 of a mile over the main track.

The Pin Oak homebred is now 10-for-12 in the money during her career.

Salsa Star made her stateside debut a successful one, three races earlier in Pimlico's fifth.

The 3-year-old Giant's Causeway filly had no problem making the transition kicking clear by 5 1/2 lengths. The horse players backed her as she went off as the 4/5 choice.

The Sagamore Farm LLC filly had not raced in seven months and had never raced at a route distance. She showed Thursday those obstacles also were no problem.

Rose was again aboard for the ride.

At Presque Isle Downs, Magger Bags completed the Herringswell triple as she won her first race under Graham's care. The 4-year-old daughter of Indian Charlie came from off the pace under Dale Beckner to take the $39,800 Allowance event. She is now 2-for-6 with a third in her all-weather track starts.
