Tough Old Lady named Claimer of the Week

Claimer of the Week at AGameofSkill.comSuave Royalty took the second race at Suffolk Downs Saturday afternoon by grabbing the lead out of the gate and running away for an 11 length win. The 8 year old was coming off a short 12 day rest but looked as if she was totally rested for her romp around the track in the $4,000 claiming event. Trained by Hector Sarmiento and ridden by Mario Madrid, the Suave Prospect mare covered the 6 panels in 1:12.44 and returned $14.40 to her backers. It was the 10 career victory for Suave Royalty. Owned by Mario Villanueva, Suave Royalty has finished in the money (top 3)  30 times from 82 career starts and earned over $265,000.
