Halo's Security finds small gap, charges to Conniver Stakes win


Friend's Choice Farm's Halo's Security scooted through a narrow gap between the pacesetter to her left and a wall of horses to her right and won the 31st running of the seven-furlong, $60,000-added Conniver Stakes for registered Maryland-bred fillies and mares yesterday at Laurel Park.

Halo's Security crossed under the wire in 1: 24 2/5, a length and a half in front over a fast surface. She paid $10.60 to win.

Maragold Princess, who also muscled her way through traffic, edged Proud Run for the place. The Halo Security-Maragold Princess exacta returned $91.40.

Jockey Nik Goodwin rode Halo's Security for trainer and breeder Robert Beall. With the $36,000 win, the 5-year-old Halo's Security has now amassed $216,653.
