Wasted Tears Sets New Course Record in $200,000 Ouija Board at LSP

Grand Prairie, Texas (Monday, May 25, 2009) - Wasted Tears, bred, owned, and trained by Bart B. Evans, won the 13th running of the Grade 3 $200,000 Ouija Board Distaff over a firm turf course at Lone Star Park on Monday.

A Bay daughter of Najran, Wasted Tears rolled along on the lead through opening fractions of :22.32, :45.36 while being pressured by eventual fourth-place finisher Hotlantic. After briefly losing the lead leaving the quarter-pole to that rival, Wasted Tears fought back to post a one-length victory over Superior Storm. Love to Tell was another 1/2-length back in third. The final time of 1:32.81 established a new turf course record breaking the record of 1:33.56 set by Kiraday on July 4, 1997.

“Her whole family has performed better the older they’ve gotten,” said winning breeder/owner/trainer Bart Evans. “She’s never really made any mistakes, and the mistakes she’s made, I made for her. She’s been very honest in her life.”

On breaking the track record, “That’s nice, I mean it’s great,” said Evans. “You know, if you raise them, you see them, they’re like your kids.”

With the win, Wasted Tears improved her record to six wins from 11 starts, including a perfect four-for-four over the Lone Star Park turf, and with the $120,000 first-place prize, she pushed her career earnings to $230,798.

Wasted Tears paid $24.40, $13.80, $7.20, runner-up Superior Storm returned $5.60, $4.00, and Love To Tell paid $7.40 for show. Hotlantic, Sweeter Still, Rustic Flame, R Charlie's Angel and Flibberjibit completed the order of finish.
