AGOS Claimer of the Week: 116 Length Comeback?

Big Glich in Philadelphia

Glich, beaten by a combined 116 horse racing lengths in his four previous starts, set the pace all the way and held on to win the third race at PARX Saturday afternoon. Glich, whose victory paid bettors a whopping $119.20 for a ticket of just two bucks, has been named the Claimer of the Week. The Maryland bred stopped the timer at 1:52.83 for the mile and 1/16 event on the main dirt track and was ridden by Hector Caballero. The victory over $5,000 claimers was the fifth in the career of Glich. The son of Scipion has finished in the money (top three finishers) 16 times in 39 lifetime races, and is trained by Victor Collazo. The 5 year old gelding is owned by V.E. Collazo and has earned over $133,000 in his career.
