Miss Temple City Wins Gr1 Shadwell Turf Mile
At Keeneland in the US, 4YO mare Miss Temple City (Temple City-Glittering Tax, by Artax) claimed the second top-flight victory of her career when scoring by a head for trainer Graham Motion in the US$1 million Gr1 Shadwell Turf Mile (8 furlongs) for 3YO+, over 5YO entires Ironicus (Distorted Humor-Meghan's Joy, by A.P. Indy) & Tourist (Tiznow-Unbridled Melody, by Unbridled's Song). Miss Temple City, whom trainer Graham Motion described as the "best filly" he's ever trained, improved her record to 5 wins (including the Gr1 Maker's 46 Mile Stakes) and 5 placings from 14 starts for US$1,213,038 earnings. She is likely to line up in next month's Gr1 Breeders' Cup Mile at Santa Anita Park.
