Her Smile Wins US Gr1 Prioress Stakes
In the US early this morning (Australian time), celebrity chef Bobby Flay's horse Her Smile (Include-Hepburn, by Capote) motored home from last-in-running to score a half-length victory in the US$250,000 Gr1 Prioress Stakes (6 furlongs) for 3YO fillies at Belmont Park in New York. Virginia-bred Her Smile (ridden by Javier Castellano for trainer Todd Pletcher) defeated Pomeroys Pistol (Pomeroy-Prettyatthetable, by Point Given) & favourite Alienation (Rock Hard Ten-Alienated, by Gone West). Her Smile now has 4 wins (also including 2010’s Listed Donna Freyer Stajes over 6.5 furlongs at Philadelphia Park) & 4 placings (including June’s Gr1 Acorn Stakes over 8 furlongs at Belmont Park, April’s Gr3 Comely Stakes over 8 furlongs at Aqueduct & March’s Listed Suncoast Stakes over 8 furlongs at Tampa Bay Downs) from 10 starts for US$316,360 earnings.
