|EMBARR, WHO WON THE $60,000 BROOKEMEADE STAKES IN HER PRIOR START|
Also trained by Cooney, Embarr covered the 1 1/16 miles over firm turf in 1:42 1/5 and paid $7.80, $4.80 and $3. It was three-quarters of a length back to Sleepless Dixie, who completed the $116.20 exacta and paid $15.20 and $6.20. It was another 2 ½ lengths back to Cougar at Heart, who paid $2.80 to show.
“She’s very game. Susan always has her on her toes and luckily I had enough horse to get her (Sleepless Dixie) before the wire,” said winning jockey Forest Boyce. “She’s a very honest filly. She’ll lay close or sit far back. She does whatever you ask her to.”
