GET TOUGH Gives ALTERNATION His 19th First Crop Winner

Making his second start and stretching out to two turns, GET TOUGH pulled away to win a one mile Maiden Special Weight by 3 1/4 lengths. On the five stakes day and Jeff Ruby Steaks-G3 undercard at Turfway Park, the 3-year-old son of ALTERNATION broke on top from post six to set the pace in this 12-horse field. Pressured most of the way around, GET TOUGH finally shook clear late in the stretch to get the victory. Lifetime record: 2-1-0-0, $11,600. O/B-Maccabee Farm. T-Thomas Drury, Jr.
