2013 HH SHEIKHA FATIMA BINT MUBARAK LADIES IFAHR CUP
DC Willeys Song captures the win guided by jockey Sarah Leutwiler from Switzerland
March 9, 2013, Sam Houston Race Park- A field of 12 fillies was assembled for the $27,500 HH Sheikha Fatima Bint Mubarak Ladies World Championship IFAHR Cup, at a distance of seven furlongs. The stakes featured all female jockeys for the second year in a row and it was Sarah Leutwiler who guided DC Willeys Song to victory in commanding fashion. The 5-year-old mare is owned by Jon R. Henningsgard of Waller, Texas, and trained by Jerenesto Torrez . This was the first stakes win in her career.
“The trainer wanted me to take her back off the pace,” said Leutwiler. “But she was so keen to go on, I just let her run.”
“She’s a very nice filly,” said the trainer, who has had her in his barn for one year.
DC Willeys Song completed seven furlongs in 1:35.59 and paid $8.00 for the win.
Sand On Fire, who was victorious in the Grade 2,$30,000 Yellow Rose here on February 23, ran second for trainer Elizabeth Brand and owner/ breeder Jane Teutsch of Larkspur, Colorado, Sand on Fire was ridden by jockey Leonie Vethaak. Br Funny Money ran third followed by longshot TTT Dark Diamond.
