`Miss Piggy' stumbles, rallies to finish fifth

October 31, 1999|By Sandra McKee

Mary Bo Quoit, the filly otherwise known as Miss Piggy and whose life is being chronicled in The Sun, ran the third race of her career yesterday.

She broke well from the gate in the seventh race before stumbling badly, going nearly to her knees.

She dropped to last, but steadied and passed tiring rivals to finish fifth in the eight-horse field.

Mary Bo Quoit was 13 3/4 lengths behind Breadknife, who finished first.
