Horse Racing Claimer of the Week at AGameofSkill.comHandsup Moneydown casually won his seventh race in a row and his ninth of his last ten on Memorial Day. The tough gelding captured the seventh race at PARX and has been named the agameofskill.com Claimer of the Week. The 5 year old led the field past every pole and finished the 6 ½ furlongs in an impressive 1:15.94 for those who have started for $10,000 or less. Ridden by his regular rider, Pablo Fragoso, the dark bay paid $3.20 to his supporters. The son of Sharp Humor won a $10,000 two lifetime event in December and has only failed to visit the Winner’s Circle one time since. Owned and trained by Ramon Preciado, the consistent runner has now won ten races in his career and finished in the money an amazing 21 of 24 trips to the post. His career earnings now exceed $242,000. Handsup Moneydown was purchased at Fasig-Tipton in October 2010 for $27,000.
