Life At Ten Wins US Gr1 Ogden Phipps Handicap
Also in the US, 5YO mare Life At Ten (Malibu Moon-Rahrahsixboombah, by Rahy) overcame a stumble at the start to notch her 5th successive victory with a front-running 2.75-lengths win in the US$250,000 Gr1 Ogden Phipps Handicap (8.5 furlongs) for fillies & mares at Belmont Park in New York. Life At Ten (ridden by John Velazquez for trainer Todd Pletcher) defeated favoured & top-weighted 4YO mare Unrivaled Belle (Unbridled's Song-Queenie Belle, by Bertrando) & fast-finishing fellow 4YO mare Funny Moon (Malibu Moon-Fun Crowd, by Easy Goer). Life At Ten (a US$35,000 yearling at the 2006 Keeneland September Sale) took her record to 6 wins (also including last start's Gr3 Sixty Sails Handicap over 9 furlongs at Hawthorne on April 17 & February's Listed Rare Treat Handicap over 9 furlongs at Aqueduct, plus 2009's Listed Snit Stakes over 8.5 furlongs at Aqueduct) & 6 placings from 13 starts for US$459,267 earnings.
