Prairie Meadows track report


Miss Macy Sue will try two turns for the first time when she heads a field of six 3-year-old fillies entered in Friday's $50,000 Panthers Stakes at Prairie Meadows.

The one-mile distance is the only question Miss Macy Sue - who has never run beyond six furlongs - has to answer on Friday, as she has a big edge in Beyer Speed Figures over her five rivals. The Beyer Figure of 98 Miss Macy Sue earned last out, defeating older allowance rivals by six lengths, was 14 points higher than any of her Friday rivals has ever run.

Jockey Perry Compton, who has a return call in the Panthers, never asked Miss Macy Sue for her best in that six-furlong allowance event here on May 23. Kelly Von Hemel trains Miss Macy Sue, a daughter of Trippi who has won her last three starts by open lengths and has a career slate of 3-0-1 from 5 starts.

Miss Macy Sue figures to set the pace in the Panthers and should prove tough to run down. Lady Bell Dawn, who has improved greatly since joining the barn of Dick Clark two starts back, may be the main danger.

Lady Bell Dawn is 2 for 2 since joining Clark's barn, with her most recent win coming at Friday's distance, when she drew off against older entry-level allowance rivals to score by 3 1/2 lengths on May 13. Glenn Corbett has a return call on Lady Bell Dawn.

Multiple stakes winners Jazzy Okie and Whatsitgonnatake add depth to the field.
