Owner Glenn Lane claimed Teriyaki Stake from David Vance early in the 1985 Meadowlands meet. I trained for Glenn. TS was a gorgeous, stout filly with ankles that looked like grapefruits. Could not get her sound enough to train never mind re-enter. Sent her to New Bolton and I will never forget the letter they sent back.
TS will never race again and will probably not be able to support carrying a foal. Ouch!
After an extended all out barn effort - and a nearly fatal setback - she got back to the races for a $16,000 tag. As she went into the starting gate I turned to Glenn and said that I had done my job.
TS won that night. That was gravy. We sent her to NY and I believe we ran her for $20,000. She finished second and was claimed. We were sick when we got the claim
