Bank Sting looking for next start in Biogio’s Rose

January 24, 2022

Ozone Park, NY – Hidden Brook Farm and Joseph and Anne McMahon’s Bank Sting, last out winner of the seven-furlong $100,000 La Verdad on January 2, will make her next start in the $100,000 Biogio’s Rose, a one-turn mile for older state-bred fillies on March 6 at the Big A.

Bank Sting had also been under consideration for the Grade 3, $250,000 Barbara Fritchie, a seven-furlong sprint for fillies and mares 4-years-old and up on February 19 at Laurel Park.

“She’s a little bit quirky and our gate guys know her here, so we’re most likely going to keep her home,” said Tonja Terranova, wife and assistant to trainer John Terranova.

The 5-year-old Central Banker bay was game to the wire to collar a stubborn Eloquent Speaker to win the La Verdad by a neck, stopping the clock in 1:25 flat over the muddy and sealed main track.

The victory was the sixth win in eight career starts and third stakes win for the talented bay, who was bred in the Empire State by McMahon of Saratoga Thoroughbreds.

Terranova said Bank Sting, who hasn’t breezed back yet out of the La Verdad, will appreciate the spacing between starts.

“She’s doing well. We’ll keep her fresh and let her run one more time back here,” Terranova said. “She’s dead fit so we just want to keep her healthy and happy.”

Bank Sting, out of the Precise End mare Bee in a Bonnet, has banked $406,300.
