It's My Day Toots jumps to stakes


Two fillies who didn't begin their careers until this season will try and make up for lost time in the $65,000 Bob Bryant Stakes, a six-furlong race that is the first Iowa-bred stakes for 3-year-old fillies of the meet.

It's My Day Toots will try to make the difficult jump from the maiden ranks to stakes winner, while Missmekissme makes only her fourth start in the Bob Bryant.

It's My Day Toots won her only start by 4 1/2 lengths here April 28. She will be coupled in the wagering with the maiden Sober at Last. Both are trained by Dick Clark.

Missmekissme has shown to be a versatile runner who can either dictate the pace, which she did in a maiden win two starts ago, or assume a stalking position, the style she used in winning a Prairie allowance race last out on May 5. Richard Monterrey, who has ridden her in all three of her starts, will once again have the call.

Judy Faye, last year's champion Iowa-bred 2-year-old filly, will look to return to form after going winless in her first three starts this year.
