Victory Script seeks seventh win at meeting

EmailAUBURN, Wash. - Victory Script will shoot for her seventh win from as many starts at the meeting on Saturday, when she heads a field of six older fillies and mares racing under $20,000 starter allowance conditions at 6 1/2 furlongs.

Victory Script, a 5-year-old daughter of Game Plan from the barn of trainer Roy Lumm, began the meeting with four straight scores for trainer Tim McCanna. She was claimed by Lumm from the last of those races for $20,000 on July 8, and she has since defeated $50,000 optional claimers at 6 1/2 furlongs and $40,000 optional claimers at six furlongs. Victory Script obviously fits very snugly under the starter allowance conditions and figures to be heavily favored to extend her winning streak while improving her career record to 9 wins from 12 starts.

Victory Script figures to be tested by Hit a Star, who is herself a prolific winner with 9 scores from 21 starts. Hit a Star, a 5-year-old daughter of Ihtimam trained by Doris Harwood, ran second and third to Victory Script in her last two tries, but she was beaten only two lengths on Aug. 4 and a half-length Aug. 17. She conceded three pounds to Victory Script in both races, but will benefit from a shift in the weights on Saturday. Both mares will carry 123 pounds.

A possible upsetter is Clair Annette, a half-sister to multiple stakes winner Makors Mark, who has raced just once, against $17,500 maidens on Aug. 9. Clair Annette won that race by a resounding nine lengths in 1:03.60 for 5 1/2 furlongs.
