Delaware Park: Bruanna in Honky Star


Never more than two lengths off the lead, Bruanna got out in front at the top of the stretch and held on to win the $58,000 Honky Star Stakes at Delaware Park by three-quarters of a length. Holiday Runner rallied for second, 2 3/4 lengths ahead of Outstanding Info, while the 8-5 favorite, Margarita's Garden, finished fifth in the field of seven 3-year-old fillies

Trained by Michael Gorham, Bruanna ($9) covered the six furlongs in 1:11.26 over a wet-fast track on a showery afternoon.
