Email

For the second straight year, trainer Kelly Von Hemel saddled three winners on Prairie Meadows Iowa Classic Night.

Von Hemel's winners included Crimson King Kat ($6.80) in the Iowa Classic Sprint, Jumpifyoudare ($3.20) in the Iowa Cradle, and Red Hot and Gold ($3) in the Ralph Hayes. In the Iowa Breeders Derby, Kate's Main Man ($12) upset 1-5 favorite Maya's Storm, who is trained by Von Hemel.

Also on the card, Good N Gold won the Iowa Breeders Oaks after Judy Faye was disqualified; Prairie Blues ($4) captured the Iowa Sorority; and Elite Lady ($15) pulled away by 5 1/4 lengths in the Donna Reed Stakes.
