Skys Red Roxy brings best Beyer into Ann Arbor


Skys Red Roxy, who pressed the lead and finished second in last month’s Regret Stakes, looks for her first stakes win in the $20,000 Ann Arbor Stakes at Pinnacle Race Course. The one-mile race is for 3-year-old Michigan-bred fillies, who will all carry 121 pounds.

Skys Red Roxy, with a morning line of 5-1, gets a new jockey in Federico Mata for the Ann Arbor. Prior to the Regret, she won her maiden in Indiana and then backed that up with a 66 Beyer Speed Figure, the best of any Ann Arbor entrant, in winning an allowance race locally.

Hustle Now, installed as the 5-2 favorite, had a dull effort to finish fifth in the Regret, her 2010 debut. The top juvenile filly in the state last year, Hustle Now won three races, two of them stakes. Jose J. Delgado gets the mount for trainer Larry Uelmen, who also saddles Fortune in Gold.

James Jackson, who saddled Regret winner Star Sheba, has entered Fully Exposed, who finished third that day. She was recently fourth in an allowance race at Mountaineer. Tommy Molina, the leading jockey at the meet, will be aboard.
