Lone Star: Jill Marie can flatter Sheer Beauty


Jill Marie brings a strong company line into the upcoming eighth race, a turf route for fillies and mares. She was third to Sheer Beauty in a Delta Downs allowance in her last start March 20, and following that race Sheer Beauty returned to win the $50,000 Irving Distaff last weekend at Lone Star Park.

As for the Delta allowance, note Sheer Beauty won the seven and a half furlong race in 1:32, which was not far off the track-record of 1:31.80.

Luis Quinonez has the mount on Jill Marie for trainer Karl Broberg, who has already had one winner on the card Thursday.
