Albany, CA (December 2, 2022) – Code Ribbon, the 3-year-old daughter of Desert Code is such a model of consistency. In thirteen career starts, she has finished in the top three twelve times. Her latest effort earned a visit today to the Golden Gate Fields winner’s circle after the 5th race.
Desert Code spotted the leaders a six length head start after the opening half-mile of the six furlong allowance. Asked to circle the field around the final turn by jockey Catalino Martinez, the gray filly responded. Coming widest of all, she gallantly closed, caught the leader and went on to win by a half-length.
Code Ribbon races for Michael Pollowitz and she is trained by Jacqui Navarre. She has earned $150,583. Bred by Seamist Racing, she was produced by the 10-time winning Grand Reward mare, Jumanah.
