Queens Prince Gol takes the Holiday Handicap
Queens Prince Gol took the lead early on and held off a bevy of challengers to win the $8,600 Holiday Handicap on Tuesday at Portland Meadows. Sent off at odds of 20 to 1, Queens Prince Gol and jockey Eliska Kubinova broke sharply and went right after the lead, battling with La Parlera in the early going. As the field turned for home, Queens Prince Gol opened up a lead, but at the final sixteenth marker, that lead looked in doubt as both Cosmic Clash and Eyes Movin started to roll down the outside. The three of them hit the wire pretty much as one, but after the photo was examined, Queens Prince Gol finished a nose in front of Cosmic Clash who was another nose in front of Eyes Movin.
Queens Prince Gol is owned by Gus and CB Myers and trained by Carrie Hoburg. Final time for the 870 yards was 47.00.
