Making her 3-year-old debut off a disappointing effort four weeks earlier, Limited View became a three-time stakes winner with a three-quarter-length triumph in the $100,000 Marshua Stakes on Saturday, Jan. 27 at Laurel Park.



Limited View winning Marshua S Jan 27, 2018A narrow second choice in a field of six sophomore fillies at 7-5, Limited View ran six furlongs in 1:10.99 for her fifth win from seven career starts, including five of six tries at Laurel. The exception came Dec. 30 when she was a flat ninth in the Gin Talking Stakes.

“She is getting better and better each time. The other day it was just circumstances and today she put it back together,” trainer and co-owner John Salzman Jr. said. “She didn’t break as sharp as I would have liked but she seems to like being outside and running at horses, so everything worked out good.”

Hall of Fame jockey Edgar Prado settled Limited View in the clear on the outside down the backstretch as Off My Stage and Last True Love led the way, before rolling to the lead around the turn and powering down the stretch under a hand ride. Last True Love ran game for second, a length ahead of Enchanted Ghost, with 6-5 favorite Enrage fourth.

“We know she’s a very nice filly and she can go to the front or come from behind,” Prado said. “Today she broke a little bit slow so I took my time and eased her outside and she was in control from there. I didn’t even hit her in the stretch because she was very game.”

Bred by Barbara G. Smith out of the Not For Love mare Loves to Glance, Limited View was purchased by Salzman for $5,200 at the 2016 Fasig-Tipton Midlantic Fall Yearling sale. From the first crop of her sire, Country Life Farm stallion Freedom Child, she also captured last year’s Maryland Million Lassie and Maryland Juvenile Filly Championship, and now has earnings of $237,096.
