Old Lady nabs Horse Racing Claiming Honors

Claimer of the Week at AGameofSkill.comMissing Sefa, an 11 year old mare, took the first race at Churchill Downs Thursday afternoon and has been named the agameofskill.com Claimer of the Week. The daughter of Sefapiano followed her usual routine in the $7,500 claiming event, by stalking the leaders and pouncing on them in the stretch, then drew clear to win by nearly two lengths. Ridden by John McKee, Missing Sefa ran the 5 ½ furlongs in 1:05:53 and returned $13.40 to her backers. Owned and trained by Jamie Grubbs, the tough bay mare notched the 24th win of her long and productive career.  She has started an amazing 91 times and finished in the money 53 times. Missing Sefa has now bankrolled more than $300,000 in lifetime earnings.
