Rymska Returns To Glory In G3 Commonwealth Oaks

BENSALEM, PA – French-bred Rymska put forth a grande course de chevaux, returning to the winner’s circle in her first start in over 7 months in Saturday’s Grade 3, $150,000 Commonwealth Oaks at Laurel Park.

Bumping with Canny after the pair emerged from the starting gate, Rymska settled near the rear under jockey Feargal Lynch while I’m Betty G set splits of :23.46, :47.38, 1:11.43, and 1:35.22. Circling the far turn four wide, Rymska emerged with a strong kick, closing along the outside of her foes to reach the line first by 3/4 of a length in a final time of 1:46.94 for the 1 1/8-mile turf event.

“She was going nicely down the back, but as soon as I got her to the outside, she had such acceleration,” Lynch said. “You don’t want to get stopped in her run. My only instructions were she’s got a huge acceleration so when she kicks, don’t get in her way. She just picked it up from there.”

Fellow Chad Brown stablemate Taperge finished gamely in second after tracking the leader throughout. I’m Betty G battled hard in the stretch, even when overcome by the top two finishers, but was able to hold on for third by a nose over In the LeeFlower FashionProud ReunionCannyChubby StarCharged, and Fly By completed the order of finish.
