Walkwithapurpose Cruises in Laurel Feature



Sagamore Farm’s Walkwithapurpose took the lead early in the Maryland Juvenile Filly Championship at Laurel on Monday and cruised to the wire to win the $100,000 race.

Ridden by Jeremy Rose, the daughter of Candy Ride defeated Hot Fun by eight lengths.

“She is starting to get it now,” Rose said. “When I broke her maiden (Oct. 3) you could tell she had talent but she was all over the track. Every race she is getting better and better. I felt Forest (Boyce on Hot Fun) coming to us but when I asked she just exploded.”

Ignacio Correas trains Walkwithapurpose, who completed the 7-1/2 furlong distance in 1:32.67.

“She’s incredible,” said Correas. “She does things very easily and is starting to mature. I hope she keeps improving. My ultimate goal is to have her run in the Black-Eyed Susan.”
