6 1/2 Furlongs Dirt Stake Purse $100.000 Filly 3 Year Olds.
1st Christina G Mb Stables Franco M
Winning form is good form especially when its from a top stable as this former cheap claimer stepped up again to make it four in a row. Off the good early pace she made good ground but really had to knuckle down to get a neck win. This filly is certainly on the up and there is no reason that she can’t keep moving up the grades.
2nd Miss Tallmadge John Henry Leparoux J R
Taken well back off the early pace she flew home and could well have won with a few extra yards. Its been a long time between drinks for this filly who hasn’t managed a win in her last ten starts but it surely cant be far away after another good performance.
3rd Deeback Mb Stables Saez L
Looked like six furlongs was as far as she wanted to go as she flattened out in the last half furlong. A decent effort though for a filly that was winning a cheap claimer 3 months ago.

The last thing you want to see as a trainer is the race engine sacrifice your horse to the lead from a wide gate. 99 times out of a hundred they go too fast too soon and weaken late and this one followed the script perfectly.
