RIQQA Prevails in Hard Fought Sprint

RIQQA won for the second time in his last three starts after a determined win by 1/2 length in this six-furlong test. The son of DAAHER vied for the lead from the start, turned back two different challengers around the turn, then held off a late closer to get the victory at Prairie Meadows. Two races back, RIQQA rallied from off the pace for a two-length win at Oaklawn Park and has now finished on the board in four of his last five starts. Bred by Shadwell Farm out of the Sahm mare Ishraak, he is trained by Kelly Von Hemel for owner Brian K. Hall.
