LIMATION Battles to Place in $175,000 Governor’s Cup

LIMATION pressed the pace to deep stretch to place in the 1 1/8-mile, $175,000 Governor’s Cup S. on the opening card of the Remington Park meet. The 4-year-old son from the first crop of ALTERNATION broke well from post six to force the pace from the start. At the top of the stretch there was still only a head separating them, and LIMATION continued to battle to the wire, finishing ahead of Classic-placed Lookin At Lee and multiple GSW Hence. Last year LIMATION was a 5 3/4-length winner of the $300,000 Super Derby-G3 (pictured) defeating Lone Sailor. Lifetime record: 17-3-0-5, $298,730. O-Michael Langford. B-David Purvis & James Purvis.
