Seven Four Seven gets up in time

Email

It wasn't nearly as easy as last time, but Seven Four Seven still was able to get up in the final yards Saturday to post a neck victory over Town Queen in the $50,000 Wintergreen Stakes at Turfway Park in Florence, Ky.

Jason Lumpkins was aboard Seven Four Seven, who returned $3.20 as the heavy favorite in a field of eight fillies and mares. Seven Four Seven, a 5-year-old mare owned by Sam Pollock and trained by Bernie Flint, had won her last start, the Likely Exchange at Turfway, with far greater ease.

On Saturday, Seven Four Seven had to overcome being hung wide on both turns of the one-mile race. She finished in 1:36.96 over a fast track.

Majority Whip finished well back in third.
