Juliet's Spirit wires My Dear


Juliet's Spirit ($17.70) went right to the lead and never looked back in Monday's $151,200 My Dear Stakes at Woodbine, winning the five-furlong dash for 2-year-old fillies by 2 1/2 lengths under Jim McAleney.

Steve Asmussen-trained runners finished first, second, and fourth in the My Dear. A Day for Dancing was a stalking second, Georgia Song, a maiden trained by Josie Carroll, closed for third, and Fanci Candi wound up fourth in the eight-horse field.

Juliet's Spirit, who was saddled by assistant trainer Steve Flint, completed the distance in 57.86 seconds. She banked $90,000 for Padua Stable and is unbeaten in two starts, with earnings of $126,000.
