Sunshine Judy shines brightly in stretch to win at Laurel

January 13, 1992|By Marty McGee

LAUREL RBB — LAUREL -- Sunshine Judy drove to victory in the Laurel Race Course feature yesterday.

The 4-year-old filly stalked the pace set by Jacki's Rose and Running Hit before angling out for the stretch drive of the 1 1/16-mile allowance race. She got the lead with about 100 yards to go, then prevailed by nearly a length.

Sunshine Judy, a daughter of Air Forbes Won, paid $3.60 to win as the 4-5 favorite in a field of seven fillies and mares. Vinnie Blengs trains the filly, who was ridden by Mario Pino.

Sunshine Judy started a late Daily Double that paid a mere $7.60 when With Finesse won the program finale.

The card was limited to nine races to permit fans to leave in time to watch the NFC championship game.
