It's Me Mom, under Willie Martinez, cruises in the Presque Isle Debutante.

It's Me Mom led from start to finish and was never challenged in the $100,000 Presque Isle Debutante for 2-year-old fillies on Saturday evening’s closing-night card.

Jockey Willie Martinez sent It’s Me Mom ($7.40) to the front and she led by as many as eight lengths at the half-mile call. Trained by Lynne Scace, It's Me Mom won by  63/4 lengths while completing six furlongs on the Tapeta in 1:09.72.

Interrogate, under Phil Teator, finished second, 1 ½ lengths in front of Dust and Diamonds.

* Glint came from off the pace to win the $100,000 Fitz Dixon Jr. Memorial for 2-year-olds.

Glint was squeezed back at the start of the 61/2-furlong race and was back early under Daniel Centeno. Trained by Kellyn Gorder, Glint ($8.60) came running in the stretch and began to draw clear late to win by three lengths. King Samurai was second, 33/4 lengths in front of Wide Receiver. Glint covered the distance in 1.16.94.

* Miss Blakely ($14), ridden by Centeno, dueled gamely through the stretch to prevail by a half-length over pacesetter Hooh Why in the $100,000 HBPA for fillies and mares.

It was another 5 3/4 lengths back to Unforgotten in third.

Miss Blakely ran a mile and 70 yards in 1.40.94.
