Ellis Park: Kiss the Devil!


Kiss the Devil, ridden by Lonnie Meche, barely held off a late rush by San Dare to win the $60,000 Dade Turf Classic at Ellis Park in Henderson, Ky. Kiss the Devil returned $6.60 as co-favorite in a field of eight fillies and mares.

Kiss the Devil, a Kris S. filly owned by Carl Pollard and trained by Dave Vance, prevailed for the first time in a stakes when completing 1 1/8 miles in 1:46.40 over firm turf.
