Lone Star: Back to back winners come out of same race


The winners of the fifth and sixth races on this afternoon's card both came out of a June 17 maiden special weight at a mile on turf at Lone Star Park. Barby Sue won that race, and she came back and took a first-level allowance on the grass in the sixth on Saturday.

One race before, Strong Gal, who was seventh to Barby Sue in the maiden allowance June 17, moved back to dirt and won the fifth, a maiden special weight at six and a half furlongs. Barby Sue is a 3-year-old daughter of Purge and from the multiple stakes-producing mare Barbara Sue. She is trained by Danny Pish.
