PEPPER CROWN WINS AGAIN ON GOLDEN GATE FIELDS TURF
Pepper Crown, the class of the field, charged down the middle of the Lakeside Turf Course to win the $42,980 Our Nautique allowance purse at Golden Gate Fields Friday.
Pepper Crown scored a 46-1 shocker in the Grade 3 San Francisco Mile on April 26 and a 10-1 upset in the Rolling Green Stakes on Sept. 1. Despite the victories in those two turf stakes, Pepper Crown was the 9-5 second choice in the Our Nautique behind 7-5 favorite Tiz Dynamic, who was 0-for-4 on grass but coming off a second-place try in an allowance-optional claiming event on Aug. 16.
