RIQQA Rallies Up the Rail to Get the Win at Oaklawn

Taking advantage of an inside lane, RIQQA closed along the rail through the stretch and pulled away to win this six-furlong test at Oaklawn Park by two lengths. The son of DAAHER was in ninth after the first half mile, but used a ground-saving trip to put himself in scoring position and took advantage of the opportunity. A Maiden Special Weight winner at Prairie Meadows last year, RIQQA has now finished on the board in 10 of 15 career starts. He is trained by Kelly Von Hemel for owner Brian K. Hall and was bred by Shadwell Farm out of the Sahm mare Ishraak.
