In another of today’s wild finishes at Keeneland, Judy the Beauty, craved out a very nice 1 length win over Gypsy Robin, with 2012 Female Sprint HOY Groupie Doll, back another 3/4 length for 3rd in a you just had to see it to believe race in the $200,000, GII Thoroughbred Club of America Stakes, for the older lady sprinters, at 6f’s over what was a dry Keeneland main for this race!
Filling out the super was Purely Hot, back another 2 3/4 lengths and back on her way to being Presque Isles local female sprinting flavor!
Judy the Beauty, is on her way to Santa Anita next month with this ticket to ride in the B/C F/M’s Sprint!
As for Groupie Doll‘s, future B/C prospects well did say she need the win here to get in and she didn’t win! Does she get a B/C sprint gate off just that lone Presque Isle Masters record-setting win and being the defending champ? Only time will tell!
