Proper Angel earns fifth victory in Office Queen Stakes


Proper Angel, ridden by Mario Pino, scored her fifth stakes victory yesterday by 4 1/2 lengths in the $31,750 Office Queen Stakes at Pimlico Race Course.

Proper Angel, owned by Bob Manfuso and his partners, raced 1 1/16 miles in 1 minute, 42 1/5 seconds in defeating six other 3-year-olds. The Ruler's Sister finished second, followed by Hay Let's Dance, Palette Knife, Dance for Jan, Flying Yolanda and Houston Miss.

The winner paid $12.80, $5.80 and $3.40. The Ruler's Sister returned $6.60 and $4.20. Hay Let's Dance paid $2.80 to show.

NOTES: Pimlico will offer no live or simulcast racing today because of a conflict with the Maryland Jockey Club picnic.

But beginning next Monday and continuing through Sept. 2, the Maryland Jockey Club will offer five Mondays of simulcasts from Saratoga and other tracks. Maryland's thoroughbred tracks usually are dark Mondays.

Pimlico runs through Aug. 18. Then, after five days with no live racing, the Maryland Jockey Club resumes racing Aug. 24 at Timonium during the Maryland State Fair. Timonium's 10-day meet lasts until Sept. 2.
