Questing makes it look easy in GI Alabama Stakes – Results and Replay

Questing – going gate to wire in today’s GI Alabama Stakes at Saratoga!

Questing , grabbed the early lead in today’s $600,000, GI Alabama Stakes and never was headed with a “tour de force1 1/4 mile effort in a “wire to wire” win at Saratoga!

“Full Results”

In Lingerie, finished 2nd back 9 full lengths, Via Villaggio was 3rd,8 lengths further back and Zo Impressive filling in the super back another 1 1/4 length more, with Grace Hall, the other top favorite in this race finishing so far back as to be a bit embarrassing to spell out the distance for you here!

The real story here was the “Bodemeister“- like crazy early factions of 22.4, 46 flat and 1:09.3 set by Questing , that just took the starch out of the rest of this field here today.

She did go wobbly again down the stretch like in her CCA Oaks win here last month but this 2:01.1 winning time might give her connections the thought of not only a possible Breeders’ Cup Ladies Classic start but maybe even a Breeders’ Cup Classic run against the boys too!
