One night after Texas-bred Grandma’s Princess captured the $65,000 Prairie Gold Lassie Stakes for fillies at Prairie Meadows for breeder/owner Tom Durant, trainer Randy Morse and jockey Ken Tohill, the three teamed with another Texas-bred, Raising Rumors, on Friday night to win the $65,000 Prairie Gold Juvenile Stakes.
The gelding by Sing Baby Sing, who is also the sire of Grandma’s Princess, rallied to win by a neck in a time of 1:13.06 for six furlongs. Just like Grandma’s Princess, Raising Rumors broke his maiden at first asking against claiming company at Churchill Downs and then stepped up to stakes company at the Kentucky track. Raising Rumors finished fifth in the Grade 3 Bashford Manor Stakes before shipping to Iowa. He now has two wins from three starts with earnings of $59,880.
