Delaware: Vogue Girl holds on


Vogue Girl, the 7-2 second choice, led from gate to wire in the $100,000 Blue Hen Stakes, leading by a length turning for home and then holding off a late surge by favored From Away to win by three-quarters of a length.

From Away was running sixth in the field of seven at the six-furlong mark when she was stuck behind horses along the inside. She moved clear and closed fast, but never seriously threatened the winner in the mile race for 2-year-old fillies.

Vogue Girl, ridden by Roberto Alvarado Jr., ran the mile in 1:38.81 and paid $9.60. Trained by Allen Iwinski, she is unbeaten in three starts.
