Seven Four Seven emerged from a tight group on the final turn and went on to a 4 1/2-length victory in the $50,000 Likely Exchange Stakes on Saturday at Turfway Park in Florence, Ky.

Ridden by Turfway's leading jockey, Jason Lumpkins, Seven Four Seven returned $6.40 as the favorite in a field of 11 fillies and mares. She finished one mile in 1:37.17 over a fast track for her eighth victory in 28 career starts.

Majority Whip finished second, followed by Looking Afar and Gal on the Go.

One race earlier, jockey Mary Doser posted the 1,000th victory of her career when she rode October Optimist ($6) to win a $26,200 allowance.
