Ballroom Blitz captured the Best of Ohio Distaff for registered Ohio-bred fillies and mares, 3-year-olds and up, besting six rivals handily over the one and one-eight miles in 1:53.71 with jockey Gerardo Corrales in the irons. Bred and trained by Robert Gorham for owner Marion Gorham, this 3-year-old daughter by Alternation-Tangueray Miss, by Cowboy Call picked up her fourth career starts in 13 tries as the 4-1 choice, upping her career earnings to $152,215.
“This filly is relatively young and as with most of the 3-year-olds, she’s been improving at this time of year,” said trainer Gorham. “The jockey gave her an excellent ride, so it was just a great day for her.”
Ballroom Blitz finished 7½ lengths ahead of 8-5 rival Sally Strong (Luis Rivera), with 7-1 High Fire (Luis Gonzalez) third.
