ALTERED Draws Off in Maiden Special Weight Score

Runner-up in a $100,000 stakes this past summer, ALTERED took control on the far turn and ran away from the competition to win this 1 1/16-mile Maiden Special Weight by 5 1/4 lengths. The 3-year-old son of ALTERNATION stalked the pace early on. He moved up to challenge for the lead midway around the turn, was the leader before they turned for home and then just widened his winning margin to the wire at Indiana Grand. Lifetime record: 10-1-2-2, $71,000. O-Penny Lauer and Falcon Racing Stable. B-Michael E. Lauer & Penny S. Lauer. T-Michael Lauer.
