Tax Refund romps


Tax Refund ($6.40) scored her second straight victory on Polytrack when she came from slightly off the pace to post a 3 1/4-length victory in the $50,000 Holiday Inaugural Stakes at Turfway Park.

A 4-year-old filly ridden by John McKee for trainer Bob Holthus, Tax Refund was coming off a win over high-priced optional claimers at Keeneland. It was her fifth win in 12 starts this season.

Beautiful Bets, the 5-2 second choice in a field of 11 female sprinters, finished second with Bluesbdancing third.

The time for six furlongs was 1:08.73, just .33 seconds off the track record for Polytrack set by Malibu Mint on Sept. 23.
