Pure Country Deliver In Glen Garnsey Splits

Three-year-old pacing filly rivals Darlinonthebeach and Pure Country drew into separate Glen Garnsey Memorial divisions on Sunday afternoon at The Red Mile, but they both shined, with Darlinonthebeach winning in 1:48 1/5 and Pure Country scoring in 1:48 2/5.

Pure Country (Brett Miller) got away third in the first $105,500 split, and she remained in that position while Call Me Queen Be (Scott Zeron) chopped out a 27 1/5 opening quarter and a 55 second half. Pure Country then came first-over past the half, but she was still two lengths behind Call Me Queen Be as she ripped through three-quarters in 1:21 4/5.
