Uran Lady (6f Maximus Lindy-Vas Lady-Endless Sands) was second for reinsman Veljko Mazsity and Urzulina (6f Maximus Lindy-Cicciolina Fling-Supergill) took the third spot with Csaba Lakatos aboard. This competitive event saw the winner gain the lead mid-stretch and gamely hold off her main rivals at the line. Ujrazz Veteran aged trotters then battled in the Jozsef Sinka Memorial (purse 1,500,000Huf, 1800 meters autostart) and the 1.15kr clocked victory went to 3.7/1 Aileron (7g Scarlet Knight-Quacelle-Jackpot du Relais) with Imre Fazekas at the lines for Prolongo Trading and trainer Joszef Rutkai. Aileron won for third time in five 2019 starts at Kincsem Park. Time To Say Goodbye (7m Maximus Lindy-Jungfrau-Valley Guardian) was a game second ahead of Alexander UR (5g Infinitif-Hoily TRFoily Fau-Egon Lavec) with Csaba Lakatos driving for trainer Rutkai. The Rutkai/Prolongo team sent out four of the eight starters in this fast class event. On the non-betting early races the two year old qualifiers continued. The impressive Coumba (3f Ready Express-Namibia-Varenne) scored timed in 1.22.4kr for traier Rutkai and pilot Imre Fazekas. This filly is by the recently retired International star Readly Express and was bred in by Menhammar Stuteri AB (Stockholm). She is worth consideration when the two year old racing begins.   Thomas H. Hicks
