Cal Expo: Silverlode earns money the old fashioned way
Silverlode earns money the old fashioned way
Silverlode, who will celebrate her 9th birthday next week, added another victory to her resume last weekend and has now banked just shy of $160,000 for owner/breeders Steve and Vickie Desomer.
A daughter of British Sterling out of the outstanding racemare and producer Charlotte’s Web, Silverlode has been a mainstay on this circuit for quite some time and established her lifetime standard of 1:55 1/5 over this track last season.
In last week’s appearance with Mooney Svendsen handling the lines, the bay miss dropped into a stalking spot early from her outside slot, made a powerful move to the lead past the half and went on to a seven and a half-length romp while making even-money look like an early Xmas gift.
“We were a little hasty getting her ready to race at this meet,” Vickie said. “That may explain whey her early efforts weren’t that good.
“She is honest and willing and has remained relatively sound throughout her career. She’s lovely to work with and has had the added benefit of Telma Hernandez and Emilio Cisneros as her caretaker.”
