Plumlake Lady heads shipper parade

Email

The versatile Plumlake Lady goes from the main track to the turf for the $75,000 Golden Sylvia Handicap on Tuesday at Mountaineer Park.

The one-mile Golden Sylvia drew a full field of 12 fillies and mares, plus one also-eligible, Cap and Gown.

Plumlake Lady has run well on a number of surfaces for Louisville-based trainer Martin Rouck. Most recently, she was second in a money allowance on grass at Churchill Downs. Polytrack was not an issue, as she won two allowance races over the winter at Turfway Park.

Most importantly, Plumlake Lady is comfortable at Mountaineer, with a record of 2-1-0 in 4 starts there, including a decisive win last fall in the Autumn Leaves Stakes at 1 1/16 miles.

True Kiss will also be shipping in from Kentucky. Trained by Bernie Flint, she has not been out since running sixth in an allowance race at Oaklawn Park on St. Patrick's Day.

Precocious Kat comes in from Chicago for trainer Chris Block. She was a tough-luck loser by a neck last time out at Churchill Downs.

Locally based No Affair stretches out after a pair of sprint stakes, the Hancock County Handicap and the Ohio Valley Handicap. This will be her first two-turn race of the season. She is trained by Margaret Grimm.

Promenade Girl makes a fifth straight stakes appearance. Trained by Larry Murray, she most recently finished fifth in the Grade 3 Breeders' Cup Distaff Handicap at Pimlico and carries top weight of 120 pounds on Tuesday.

Beau Watch is the only horse in the field to have won a stakes last time out, capturing the Wild Rose at Prairie Meadows.
