My Dominick James remains unbeaten


Six Illinois-bred stakes Tuesday at Fairmount Park produced a mix of the predictable and the surprising, with a pair of locally based horses pulling off upsets in the route stakes for older horses after Chicago-based shippers won the 2-year-old stakes early on the card.

As impressive as any stakes winner on the day was 2-year-old My Dominick James, who won his third race without a defeat by 5 1/4 lengths in the $50,700 Troy Our Boy. Under wraps the final half-furlong, My Dominick James ($2.20) was timed in 1:12.80 for six furlongs over a track that produced somewhat slow clockings all afternoon.

Two-year-old filly Miss Fontana ($6.60) worked harder and ran much slower (six furlongs in 1:13.80) to win the $51,100 All Sold Out by three-quarters of a length.

The $50,600 Bungalow saw Fairmount-based La Joyeria ($39.80), a 19-1 shot in a five-horse field, lead most of the way, holding off 4-5 favorite Stop a Train for a half-length win.

Lune Rouge ($8.80) turned an outside-pressing trip into a 1 1/4-length win over 3-5 favorite Big Lou in the $50,800 Pollyanna Pixie. Tom Amoss trains beaten favorite Big Lou, but the Amoss barn did not miss with 3-5 Classic R.J., who turned in the day's fastest race (six furlongs in 1:11.20) winning the $51,000 Tex's Zing by almost two lengths.

And finally, in the $51,000 Pete Condellone Memorial, the local horse Indian Moonshine ($28.20), claimed for $7,500 in June, rallied past tough-trip, 6-5 favorite Stonehouse to win by 1 1/2 lengths.
