Ladyledue still unbeaten


AUBURN, Wash. - Undefeated 3-year-old filly Ladyledue ran her winning streak to four Saturday with an emphatic victory in the $50,000 Federal Way Handicap at Emerald Downs.

Trained by Bonnie Jenne for owner Jon Sather of Manson, Wash., Ladyledue shot to the lead under regular rider Ricky Frazier, put away 7-5 betting favorite What R the Odds turning for home and inched clear to win by 1 3/4 lengths. She covered 6 1/2 furlongs in 1:16.60 and tied an Emerald Downs record with four consecutive stakes victories to begin a career.

Seeking Ema closed to finish second and Glo Bou Liza was third in the field of 10. What R the Odds, a three-time stakes winner at Hastings Racecourse, faded to finish seventh.

The winner's share of $27,500 increased Ladyledue's lifetime earnings to $94,261. The daughter of Slewdledo and the Exploded mare Exploded's Girl could vault past $100,000 in her next start, likely the $50,000 Irish Day Handicap at one mile on June 14.
