Va-bred Hear The Word Wins Hurdle Debut

Virginia-bred Hear The Word, owned by Middleburg-based syndicate Riverdee Stable, won his hurdle debut in the 2 1/4-mile maiden special weight at the Dogwood Classic on Saturday. The son of Corinthian, who last year won the Virginia Turf Championship, opened up a 22-length lead and held onto it by three-quarters of a length at the wire. Congratulations to all connections and to trainer Todd Wyatt.
