Woodlandsway (GB), a British bred 4-year-old filly, notched her fifth consecutive victory Tuesday at Turf Paradise when capturing the eighth race by a coasting two lengths. When her previous victory at Canterbury Park that started the win skein is added to the mix, Woodlandsway has been unbeaten in her last six efforts.
The track will be dark Dec. 24 and 25, with no live or simulcast racing. Live racing resumes Friday (Dec. 26) which is also the opening day of Santa Anita.
Owned and trained by Robertino Diodoro, Woodlandsway ($3.60), who is a perfect 5-for-5 at Turf Paradise, seized the lead, opened up daylight on her six rivals and was hand-ridden throughout to the wire.
Handled by Geovanni Franco, who’s been aboard for all six wins, Woodlandsway, favored at 4-5, sped the six furlongs in 1:09.41. Incentive Award finished second with Codys Cupcake third in the field of fillies and mares.
