Presque Isle: It's Me Mom ready for Satin and Lace Stakes


It’s Me Mom is ready for next Tuesday’s $100,000 Satin and Lace after beating older fillies and mares in the allowance prep for the stakes.

“It was the first time she faced older horses and I wanted to see how she would handle them,” trainer Lynne Scace said. “Considering the outcome, I would say she did fine.”

It’s Me Mom led from start to finish while winning the prep by 2 1/4 lengths over Presque Isle’s Tapeta track. The race was at the same 5 1/2-furlong distance as the Satin and Lace.

“She absolutely loves this surface,” Scace said.

Over the winter, Scace took It’s Me Mom south and ran her at Tampa Bay Downs and then Gulfstream Park.

“She just didn’t like the dirt at all, she finished second at Tampa and fourth at Gulfstream, but it was under duress,” Scace said.

It’s Me Mom is the only horse her owners, Jean and Tom Bosch, have in training right now.

“She is just a freaky horse,” Scace said. “Her owners have been offered quite a bit for her, but they won’t sell. They just want to enjoy her.”
