Longshot Lyonell jumps to upset in the Temple Gwathmey
Placeholder Image
Robert A. Kinsley’s Lyonell, one of the lightest-weighted horses in Saturday’s $75,000 Temple Gwathmey Handicap (Gr. 2), made a powerful run to take the lead at the last fence and prevailed by 1 1/2 lengths in the featured race of the 98th annual Middleburg (Va.) Spring Races. Zanjabeel, second in the $150,000 Marion duPont Scott Colonial Cup in Camden three weeks earlier, collected his second straight runner-up purse for owners Rosbrian Farm and Wendy and Ben Griswold.
