Spun to Run Romps in Ballezzi Mile

With a dazzling burst from just off the pace near the three-eighths pole, Spun to Run blew open a close race and came home a thoroughly dominant winner of the $100,000 M.P. Ballezzi Appreciation Mile Saturday afternoon at Parx.

Sitting just off leader Carlos L. for the first half mile, Spun to Run, a three year-old son of Hard Spun, went after the front runner entering the far turn and went by him like he was standing still. He opened a four length lead in a blink, continued to widen that lead into the stretch and then was geared down for the entire last furlong and still won by six and three-quarter lengths.

Owned by Robert Donaldson, trained by Carlos Guerrero and ridden by Mychel Sanchez, Spun to Run went off as the 6-5 favorite and paid $4.40. Under wraps at the end, he was clocked for the mile over a fast track in 1:37.3.
