The four-year-old daughter of Master Lavec-Hello Mamie tucked into an early four-hole while In Nomine Patri and Hardrock Kid went at it to the quarter pole in :28.4. Hardrock Kid eventually cleared, but he quickly took a backseat to a backstretch-brushing Buzz Bomb. The new leader was on the hook for a half-mile clocking of :57.2, but Dontevenknowmymame took matters into her owns hands in the third quarter. She passed the third post in 1:26.3 and only needed a :30.2 closing panel to win by 1-1/4 lengths over Man Man. All Munky Business grabbed the show dough.
Owen Eiler, Jr. of Philadelphia, PA owns and trains the 13-time winner, who improved her 2012 record to 2-1-1 in four tries with the victory. The $292,250 payday helped boost her lifetime earnings to $108,861.
“Coming around the last turn I was worried about Yannick [Gingras] on my back [with My Man],” Abbatiello said, “But she kept trotting to the stretch. She put in a good effort. She’s very consistent. She hasn’t thrown in a clunker since Owen bought her.”
