Miss Confusion best in Prime Rewards


Miss Confusion proved much the best in the $40,000 Prime Rewards at Delta Downs on Friday, when she drew out to an eight length win in the one-mile race for fillies and mares who had never won a stakes. Mini Brush finished second, a length and a half clear of third-place finisher Ballroom Deputy.

Miss Confusion ($5) pushed pacesetter Crypto Em through an opening quarter in 23.09 seconds, took over from there and increased her advantage to the wire. She covered the distance over a fast track in 1:40.71.

Ricky Faul rode the winner for trainer Frank Leggio. Miss Confusion earned $24,000 for her first stakes win, and overall has a record of five career wins from 23 starts for earnings of $137,430. She is a daughter of Miswaki and races for Earl and Keith Hernandez.
