The Phipps Stakes – GI [BC]
BEL Race 7 1 1/16M – Dirt
Four Year Olds and Up Fillies and Mares
1st Cannolo, trained by Mb Stables
A rather big upset as this filly showed her class and got up for the win in here. I did think she was one of the best chances to upset the favorite and she proved it true. She ran the distance in 1:41.54 and earned $420.000 plus a Breeders Cup Distaff berth.
2nd Camp Hollywood, trained by John Henry
A big run from this filly here as I did not think she stood much of a chance but she darn sure tried to pull of a shocker. She closed well to run second and was only beaten a length by the winner at the wire.
3rd Out And Bad, trained by Night Rider Stables
Pretty good run from this filly here as she got up for a nice third and I was not sure if she was going to be able to run this well at this distance. She ran well from off the pace and was only beaten a length for it all.
4th Class Status, trained by Team 7 Illusions
Her usual style of being near or on the lead ended up being what probably got her beat here as she was in front for most of the way. She stayed strong and fought on
near the wire to only get beat a length for the whole thing.
An upset if you will here as Z Command was beaten in here and she just did not fire. Cannolo is no slouch though and one of the best in this division for sure. Congratulations to Cannolo and Mb Stables.
