Malibu Moon's Life At Ten wires field in Aqueduct's Rare Treat

Saturday, February 20, 2010

Life At Ten, a 5-year-old mare by Malibu Moon, ran her win streak to three in the $65,000 Rare Treat S. at Aqueduct on Feb. 20.

Sent off as the 4-5 favorite, Life At Ten broke alertly from post position two under Richard Migliore and was never seriously threatened at any point, taking the field gate to wire. She coasted home a 5 1/4-length winner for trainer Todd Pletcher. The performance was her best to date, earning her a gaudy 98 Beyer Speed Figure.

Migliore had high praise for the daughter of Malibu Moon. “Warming up, I don’t think a horse could instill more confidence in a rider. The more I warmed her up, I felt like she was a cinch. It was basically over within an eighth of a mile; it was like going horseback riding.”

The Rare Treat marked the second straight stakes triumph for Life at Ten; she took the Snit S. at Aqueduct on Dec. 19. With the win, Life At Ten improved her career record to 4-5-1 from 11 starts and raised her lifetime earnings to $189,269. 

Malibu Moon also was well-represented at Fair Grounds on Saturday, with his son Baltimore Bob finishing third in the Fair Grounds Handicap (G3T). The Helen Pitts trainee was also third in his previous start, the John Connally Memorial (G3T) at Sam Houston. A versatile performer, Baltimore Bob is 6-3-3 in 22 lifetime starts, with earnings of $184,880.
