Sophieshardtocatch lived up to her name when breaking her maiden in fine fashion at Arlington on Saturday.
Owned by Phillip Maas, Sophieshardtocatch broke nicely, and jockey Mitchell Murrill was able to settle her on the heels of the leaders for the first half of the race. Turing into the home stretch, Sophieshardtocatch moved up ominously into the lead, and pulled away to win by a comfortable three-and-a-half lengths.
This first win will have done this daughter of Hard Spun’s confidence no end of good.
