Filly goes for repeat vs. elders

Email

AUBURN, Wash. - The top fillies and mares on the grounds will come together in Saturday's Matinee Girl Invitational Handicap at Portland Meadows, a six-furlong race with a purse of $7,500.

Also on the Saturday card are a pair of six-furlong stakes for Oregon-bred 2-year-olds, each with a purse of $20,000-added. The Janet Wineberg for fillies will go as the fifth race with a field of 10, while the Bill Wineberg for colts and geldings has lured 11 entrants and will go as eighth race.

The Matinee Girl, which is slated to be run as the seventh race, will have a field of seven headed by the exceptional 3-year-old Bullishdemands, who humbled her elders in last month's Diane Kem Handicap at six furlongs. Bullishdemands, a daughter of Bull Inthe Heather from the barn of trainer Gene Davis, won the Diane Kem by 4 1/2 widening lengths over Corona Del Hielo in 1:12.30. It was the third win and the second stakes win for Bullishdemands, who won the five-furlong Lassie Stakes here last November.

Corona Del Hielo, a speedy 4-year-old trained by Rolland Fergason, was favored in the Diane Kem. That was her first start since July and she should be set to move forward with a recent race under her girth.

Also dangerous is Chiltepin, who defeated allowance rivals by nearly a dozen lengths on Oct. 23, when she got 5 1/2 furlongs in 1:06. That was the second career win from nine starts for the Ben Root-trained Chiltepin.
