SHES OUR FASTEST TAKES FILLY DIVISION OF THE TEXAS STALLION STAKES SATURDAY AT LONE STAR PARK
GRAND PRAIRIE, Texas (Saturday, May 26, 2018) – Mark Norman & Norman Stables LLC’s filly Shes Our Fastest (Oratory) won the filly division of the Texas Stallion Stakes by six and three-quarters lengths from a field of five. Final time for the one-mile contest was 1:38.20 on a fast main track.
Shes Our Fastest raced comfortably in third position off the rail, was asked early in the far turn and made her bid on the outside, overtook the two leaders turning into the stretch and drew away under steady urging.
Winning rider Richard Eramia said “She was nice and relaxed and ran a big race today. I got where I wanted and did everything easy.”
“I knew when Richard elected to go around, it was on,” said winning trainer Paul Duhon. “She trained well this morning and I was really impressed with how she acted on the track.”
Mutuels for the winner were $10.80, $5.20 and $3.40. Second place went to Flight Queen who paid $3.80 and $3.00. Howboutthiscowgirl was the early pacesetter dropping back under a drive in the final furlong, but able to hold on for the show returning $3.40. Favorite Patrona Margarita failed to respond and finished fourth 12 & ½ lengths with Sing Prada Sing completing the order.
This was the third career win for Shes Our Fastest from nine career starts. Her total earnings including the $39,ooo winners share from this are now $120,550.
