Old Coach Farm's Eyerish Inspired, a 4-year-old gray filly by Paddy O'Prado, found the winner's circle for the second time since the launch of the Fantasy Ownership Challenge with a victory in a $12,500 claiming race on the turf at Delaware Park July 22.
Trained by Mike Gorham and ridden by Augusto Marin, Eyerish Inspired raced in ninth in a field of 11 for more than a half-mile before launching a sustained bid that carried to the her front by a nose at the finish in the one-mile-and-70-yard race on a course listed as firm. Archarella and Gala's Bank were second and third, respectively, in a blanket finish.
Eyerish Inspired paid $28.80 to win. When she won at Laurel Park in early April, she retured $19 on top.
Eyerish Inspired, who earned $9,600 for the victory, is the fifth Challenge horse to win at Delaware Park in the past month. The filly moved into the top 10 in contest earnings with $29,901.
