AUBURN — Still going strong at age 10, Assessment took the early lead and never looked back Thursday while scoring a 4¾-length victory over Chu and I in the $14,800 Carl’s Jr. Purse for 3-year-olds and up.
Ridden by Gallyn Mitchell, Assessment ran one mile in 1:35.92 and paid $6.80, $3.80 and $3. Mitchell also was aboard Assessment when the Jump Start gelding won the 2009 Longacres Mile, and has been aboard the big bay for his last eight wins at Emerald Downs.
Assessment earned $8,140 for the victory to leapfrog Noosa Beach into second place on the track’s all-time earnings list with $465,430.
Wasserman is No. 1 with $575,024.
