Funny Annie by a head


Taking the lead after five furlongs, Funny Annie battled on gamely through a long stretch duel, then just turned back the late challenge from the 4-5 favorite, Potra Clasica, to post a head upset in the Wayward Lass Stakes.

Ridden by Cecilio Penalba for trainer Michael McDonald, Funny Annie covered the 1 1/16 miles over a track labeled wet fast in 1:45.23 and returned $24.60.

Potra Clasica was more than two lengths clear of Gadolinium, who was 4 3/4 lengths ahead of fourth-place Meadow Skippin.
