Liam's Dream lone heavy favorite to get job done


One heavy favorite delivered, but two others failed to even satisfy show bettors in Friday night's stakes tripleheader at Penn National Race Course.

Liam's Dream ($2.40), taking a steep drop in class after winning the Grade 3 Cicada in March, cruised to a 2 1/2-length win in the $75,000 Wonders Delight Stakes for Pennsylvania-bred 3-year-old fillies.

Based in New York with trainer Tony Dutrow, Liam's Dream is now 4 for 5 lifetime after covering the six furlongs in 1:12.01, the slowest time by nearly a second of Friday's three stakes. Jeremy Rose, who was aboard for Liam's Dream's only loss in the Grade 2 Forward Gal at Gulfstream Park in January, rode the daughter of Saint Liam again and this time got the job done while coming from slightly off the pace.

Lovabull Me finished second at 25-1, a half-length in front of Listen In, the winner of last fall's Blue Mountain.

In the $75,000 Danzig for 3-year-old statebreds, Foreign Argument ($23.20) extended his winning streak to three races with a three-length score over Gator Bay. Turbo Speed, an uncoupled stablemate of Foreign Argument, finished last of six as the 3-5 favorite.

Foreign Argument, ridden by Angel Rodriguez for trainer Bernard Houghton, ran the six furlongs in 1:11.24. He is now 4 for 8 lifetime.

In the $60,000 Changing Times, an open stakes for older sprinters, Ju Jitsu Jax ($16.20), wheeling back two weeks after an off-the-board finish in a turf stakes at Pimlico, led wire to wire to win by 1 1/4 lengths over Whistle Pig.

New York shipper Digger, a two-time stakes winner this season who also finished second in the Grade 2 General George Handicap in February, was fourth at 6-5.

Ju Jitsu Jax, ridden by J.D. Acosta for trainer Scott Lake, covered six furlongs in 1:09.86 while winning his second stakes this season.
