2013 Texas Yellow Rose, Grade 2

Sand On Fire uses a quick turn of foot to capture the G2 win

February 23, 2013, Sam Houston Race Park- Six fillies went to the post in the $30,000 Grade 2 Texas Yellow Rose for 4 yr olds. TTT Tiny Tina by Mano Y Mano set the pace but gave way to Delishess on the turn.

Delishess, a ship in from Delaware Park sired by Dahess, pulled away down the stretch but was caught in late stretch by hard driving Sand On Fire. Sand On Fire won by 1 ¼ in the time of 1:35.02.

Jockey Dakota Wood guided the 4-year-old daughter of Burning Sand to victory, covering seven furlongs in 1:35.02. Owned and bred by Jane Teutsch of Larkspur, Colorado, Sand on Fire has now won three of her seven lifetime starts.

“I rode this filly a couple of times and won the stake with her at Retama,” said Wood. “She’s one of those that you let her do her thing, and she’ll get the job done.”

“We’re really proud of her, said owner Ray Teutsch. “This was her distance and she can compete with the best. We’re very thankful that she proved herself tonight.”

This was the 2nd out of 2013 for Sand On Fire who is trained by Elizabeth Brand. Sent off as the betting favorite, Sand on Fire paid $5.00 for the win.
