3YO ZAPHICAL Pulls Away in MSW at Arlington
Having placed in two of three career starts, ZAPHICAL took the lead in upper stretch and drew off to a 2 1/2-length win in a six-furlong Maiden Special Weight on the all-weather at Arlington Park. The 3-year-old filly by COWBOY CAL moved up to challenge the frontrunner at the top of the stretch after stalking the pace close up, then eventually pulled away to get the victory. In her most recent start, ZAPHICAL placed behind a now two-for-two Godolphin homebred filly by Bernardini out of a multiple champion. Lifetime record: 4-1-0-2, $20,750. O-Bilbrey Farms. B-Mike Bilbrey. T-Steve Manley.
