Solano: Catch My Fancy best in Fairfield Stakes


Catch My Fancy ($5) had every reason not to win the $45,600 Fairfield Stakes for 3-year-old fillies at the Solano County Fair on Saturday.

She dumped rider Russell Baze and ran off in the post parade. She had to swerve around Brenda Meova when the pacesetter broke down at the quarter pole. She was in tight and got bumped as she split favored Yessiremychickadee and Come On Margaret in the stretch.

But she still won the six-furlong race by one-half length over River Song in 1:10.91.

Catch My Fancy, owned by the Lanni Family Trust and trained by Craig Dollase, scored her first win of 2006 while making her third start of the year. The winner of last year's Barretts Debutante at Fairplex, she earned $25,350 to lift her career earnings to $141,166 with three wins in seven starts.
