Farrell holds off late charge in Pippin Stakes


HOT SPRINGS, Ark. – Farrell picked up the sixth stakes victory of her career on Saturday at Oaklawn Park, where she withstood pace pressure from Terra Promessa then a late charge from Ever So Clever to win her 4-year-old debut in the $125,000 Pippin Stakes. The race is a local steppingstone to the Grade 1, $700,000 Apple Blossom and that race is a goal, said winning trainer Wayne Catalano.
