Email

HOT SPRINGS, Ark. - Daughters of Medaglia d'Oro keep turning in big performances this meet at Oaklawn Park. First it was Rachel Alexandra, who won last month's $50,000 Martha Washington in stakes record time. Sunday, the stallion's big winner was She's Our Annie, who equaled the stakes record in the $50,000 Prima Donna, when she won the six-furlong race for 3-year-old fillies in 1:09.03.

It was the third consecutive win for She's Our Annie, who won her maiden in her second career start here Feb. 6, then came back and won a first-level allowance by six lengths on Feb. 26. She broke on top in the Prima Donna, and was quickly up by 1 1/2 lengths through an opening quarter in 22.49 seconds. She's Our Annie remained clear through a half-mile in 45.43, then cruised home to equal the 1987 mark set in the race by Only a Glance.

"She still had something left if someone was going to contest her," said Jon Court, who rode She's Our Annie for trainer Jinks Fires.

She's Our Annie won by 2 1/2 lengths over On the Menu. It was another 6 1/2 lengths back in third to Auspicious. The field was reduced to four starters with the scratch of Simplify, and there was no show wagering. She's Our Annie was second choice to 4-5 favorite Auspicious, and she paid $6.20.

She's Our Annie races for her breeder, Destiny Oaks of Ocala.
