Never Enough Time Holds Sway in Skipat

BALTIMORE, MD – Larry Johnson homebred Never Enough Time struck the front end early and had enough left to hold sway late and win Saturday’s $100,000 Skipat Stakes Presented by Runhappy at Pimlico.

Never Enough Time broke from post 3 under Julian Pimentel as the 5/2 second choice and went right to the lead, though Liza Star and the 2/1 favorite Bronx Beauty pressured her pace along the outside.

After posting opening fractions of :23.46 and :46.03, Never Enough Time straightened for home still on the lead and proved too difficult to catch.

The Mike Trombetta trainee crossed 3/4 of a length clear while completing the 6-furlong fast dirt dash in 1:10.42.

Bronx Beauty saved second by a head over Bye Bye J, while S W Briar Rose was 3/4 of a length further back in fourth.

Liza Star and Last True Love completed the order of finish.

Chalon, the 5/2 morning line favorite, was scratched.

Never Enough Time’s win was her second straight following her first stakes score in the Alma North at Laurel Park. The Maryland-bred 4-year-old Munnings filly improved her overall record to 9-5-1-0 with $237,393 earned while competing exclusively against open-company fillies and mares.

Never Enough Time returned $7 to win, $3.80 to place, and $2.80 to show. Bronx Beauty brought back $3.60 to place and $2.60 to show, while Bye Bye J paid $2.80 to show.
