SHAKOPEE, Minn. - Proving clearly best, Stylish lived up to her even-money billing by winning the $100,000 Lady Canterbury.

Ten fillies ran in the one-mile turf race. Taken in hand and reserved for a half, Stylish tracked the pace in the last flight as a three-horse pace battle was taking shape.

Rider Brice Blanc eased Stylish off the inside entering the stretch and roused her with the whip. Racing in the six path through the stretch, Stylish responded with eye-catching acceleration to sweep clear of the rest of the field and prevail by three lengths, stopping the timer in 1:34.91.
