Claimer of the Week: An Old Lord wins North of the border

Lord of Greatness waited near the back of the field, traveled five wide in the turn and closed with authority to win the fourth race at Woodbine last Wednesday night defeating $12,500 claimers. His two length victory was the 16th of his career and he has been named Claimer of the Week. While racing over the polytrack in Toronto the 9 year old covered the 7 panels in 1:23.52 and returned a whopping $29.20 to his backers. Ridden by Matt Moore and trained by W.V. Armata, the Florida bred horse has now started 61 times in a very productive career and finished in the money (top three finishers) 35 times. Owned by Peter Armata, Lord of Greatness has now earned $570,000 in lifetime earnings. The son of Greatness was sold at the March 2008 Ocala auction for $55,000.
