3YO RIQQA Rallies Up the Rail to Win MSW at Prairie Meadows

Having placed in two of his last four starts, RIQQA took advantage of an opening along the rail and rallied to win a six-furlong Maiden Special Weight by 1 1/4 lengths. The 3-year-old son of DAAHER was never far back racing on the inside of two others on the turn. He continued in that position and then moved up to challenge for the lead at the top of the stretch and eventually pulled clear to earn the victory at Prairie Meadows. Trained by Kelly Von Hemel for owner Brian Hall, RIQQA was bred by Shadwell Farm out of the Sahm mare Ishraak.
