Win Tucker named AGameofSkill Claimer of the Week

Claimer of the Week at AGameofSkill.comWin Tucker, a 6 year old son of Nooo Problema, has been named the Claimer of the Week after an impressive victory at Turfway Park last Friday night. In a field of tough $5,000 claimers, the gelding faced 9 others who had not won two races in the past 6 months; however the entire field had a collective tally of 89 career wins. In the 5 ½ furlong test, Win Tucker began passing foes with ease midway in the turn, and when asked for serious run by rider Ben Creed, he attacked the leaders and won without difficulty by nearly 2 lengths. The timer was stopped at 1:05.45. Win Tucker has been a gem of consistency and recorded 4 wins in both his 4 year old and 5 year old seasons. His first win of 2012 gives him a career record of 12-7-8 from 41 career starts with earnings just less than $100,000. Win Tucker is owned and trained by William Stinson, Jr.
