3YO ZAPHICAL Rallies to Score Arlington Allowance
ZAPHICAL won for the second time in her last three starts after taking a six-furlong Allowance test at Arlington Park by a neck. The 3-year-old filly from the third crop of COWBOY CAL changed racing tactics this time to settle off the leaders in the early going. She started her closing move around the turn going three wide as they turned for home and ran down the frontrunner to earn the victory. At the end of July, ZAPHICAL stalked the pace up close and then took command to win a Maiden Special Weight here by 2 1/2 lengths. Lifetime record: 6-2-0-2, $37,214. O-Bilbrey Farms. B-Mike Bilbrey. T-Steve Manley.
