Delaware: Princess Pelona prevails


Princess Pelona ($7) overtook pacesetter Dance Fee approaching the eighth pole and held on for a three-quarter-length victory in the $55,300 Winter Melody Stakes for fillies and mares at Delaware Park.

It was the second consecutive stakes win and the third added-money score in six starts since mid-November for the 6-year-old Princess Pelona.
