MARYJEAN sat off a hot early pace out of which Platinum Lady proved herself the real deal, shaking off the pesky Mount Stepney in the lane to draw off. There was a blanket finish for second and Mount Stepney held on by the narrowest of noses, just edging out our girl.
We’ll give MJ a couple of days to cool out and we’ll see how she came back, though all early signs are good. The odds are that we will drop her back into claiming company and let her rip and see if we can get that elusive 2nd win.
In the interim, after much confusion over the date of TERICE’s next race, we will be entering her today for Thursday night in a Starter Allowance going a mile and 70 over the turf carrying a purse of $17,000. We’ll keep you posted as entries are drawn.
And, of course, for your viewing pleasure, Michelle has put together a great video of MJ’s evening including the blanket photo for 2nd through 4th.
