Asi Siempre Wins US Gr1 Spinster Satkes
In the US, 4YO mare Asi Siempre (El Prado-Siempre Asi, by Silver Hawk) "drove clear of a field containing 5 Gr1 winners" to record a 2.25-lengths victory in the US$500,000 Gr1 Juddmonte Spinster Stakes (9 furlongs on the new Polytrack surface) for fillies & mares at Keeneland in Kentucky, reported thoroughbredtimes.com. Asai Siempre (ridden by Julien Leparoux for trainer Patrick Biancone) "seized command with a 6-wide move into the stretch & left her 8 challengers in the dust" to defeat Soul Search (A.P.Indy-Solar Colony, by Pleasant Colony) & Promenade Girl (Carson City-Promenade Colony, by Pleasant Colony). Kentucky-bred Asi Siempre (who won the Gr3 Valley View Stakes last October on the Keeneland turf) entered the Spinster with 5 wins & 5 placings from 14 previous starts, all on grass.
