2010 Ogden Phipps H. (G1) - Life At Ten

Life At Ten scored her fifth straight victory on Saturday afternoon, grabbing the lead coming out of the gate and running off to a 2¾-length victory over favored Unrivaled Belle in the 42nd running of the Grade 1, $250000 Ogden Phipps at Belmont Park. Under jockey John Velazquez, the 5-year-old Malibu Moon mare stumbled slightly at the break, then zipped to the front, setting fractions of 23.22, 45.55 and 1:08.40 while being shadowed by Unrivaled Belle. Rounding the turn, the favorite ranged up alongside to challenge at the quarter pole, but Life At Ten found another gear and pulled clear through the stretch to complete the 1 1/16th miles in 1:40.72. "I gave her a little help at the five-sixteenths pole, she quickened up, and it was all the horse from there on," said Velazquez. Unrivaled Belle, who had defeated reigning Horse of the Year Rachel Alexandra in the Grade 2 La Troienne in her previous start, held on for second by a head over Funny Moon, who was trailed by Manitoba Miss and Pumpkin Shell.
