Eisaman sales grad Aibhilin up in time to take $100K Selima S.
RSS Feeds Tuesday, September 24, 2013
Eisaman's big day at Laurel Park continued in the $100,000 Selima S. as the 2-year-old filly Aibhilin weaved her way through horses to win the 5 1/2-furlong turf contest (VIDEO).

Ridden by Edwin Rivera and trained by Cal Lynch, Aibhilin caught pacesetter Hot Squeeze in the last few strides to win by a head in 1:02.25.

Aibhilin, a daughter of Sky Mesa, had finished third and fourth respectively in her two previous starts, the Colleen S. and the Sorority S., both at Monmouth Park.

“My filly broke good and I was always in good position,” said Rivera. “At the quarter pole I thought that I could win it if I could just stay off of the leader’s shoulder. My owner and trainer will be very happy with this little girl after today’s race. She gave it her all.”

Owned by David & Margaret Wimer, Aibhilin was originally purchased by Eisaman for $57,000 at the 2012 Keeneland September Yearling sale, then pinhooked and sold for $140,000 to the Wimers at 2013 OBS Spring 2-year-old sale in April.
