Prairie Meadows: Sea the Joy scores


Sea the Joy ($5.80) went clear entering the stretch and held off the late charge of Cowgirls Don't Cry to score a one-length victory in the $50,000 Prairie Gold Lassie for 2-year-old fillies at Prairie Meadows.

Sea the Joy dueled outside of Irish Party to the stretch before opening up a five-length advantage a sixteenth out. Sea the Joy, a daughter of Stormy Atlantic, stopped the clock in 57.88 seconds for the five furlongs under jockey Joel Campbell. Irish Party held on for third.

Steve Asmussen trains Sea the Joy, who won for the second time in her third career start.
