Seven Four Seven ($5.00) wins her third straight stakes at Turfway Park in the $50,000 Fairway Fun Stakes.

Seven Four Seven captured her third straight stakes at Turfway Park when getting up in the final strides Saturday to defeat Town Queen by a head in the $50,000 Fairway Fun Stakes.

Seven Four Seven, a 5-year-old mare owned by Sam Pollock, returned $5 after finishing 1 1/16 miles in 1:44.35 over a muddy track. Seven Four Seven captured the Likely Exchange and Wintergreen in her two previous starts.

The victory was the record 42nd of the Turfway winter-spring meet for trainer Bernie Flint, who on Friday surpassed the former mark of 40 set in 1996 by John Parisella. Flint will have won a record 17th Turfway title when the meet ends Thursday.

Jason Lumpkins, who rode Seven Four Seven, also appeared destined to set a record for most wins in a Turfway meet, having drawn to within just a few wins of Kris Prather's 2001 record of 109 for most wins by a jockey at a Turfway meet. After Saturday, four programs still remained in the meet.
