Argentine Tango Finishes Seventh

Argentine Tango, a one-time stakes horse  at Calder and Gulfstream,  finished seventh in Thursday night's eighth race at Mountaineer Park  in Chester, W. Va.

It was a $5,000 claiming race at a mile and 70 yards on dirt with a $6,600 purse.

Our previous post told the story of how Argentine Tango, now a  seven-year old, has been moved up to West Virginia and  down in class.

Argentine Tango  and his entrymate Candid Opinions were sent off  at 15-1. Pared won the race in 1:46.25.

Wayne's Way, another former Florida stakes horse, finished third in the  ninth  and final  race at  Mountaineer.

It was  a $5,000 claiming race at 5 1/2 furlongs on dirt.

In 2014 as a  2-year-old, the gelding Wayne's Way  finished fourth in the Dr. Fager Stakes at Gulfstream while trained by Kathleen O'Connell  for breeder/owner Gilbert Campbell.

Wayne's  Way was  claimed  from Campbell out  of  a race  at Laurel Park  in Maryland  on Nov. 27, 2014 and since  the has been racing at Msaryland and  West Virginia tracks
