Writing on wall says Princess Jen


If the mare Princess Jen could read, she would love how Sunday's $30,000 Lady's Secret at Remington Park sets up for her on paper.

Many of her 11 rivals want the early lead in the seven-furlong race for fillies and mares, and if they duel early, it will benefit Princess Jen's closing style.

"You always want all the speed you can have," said Ronnie Campisano, who trains Princess Jen.

Campisano has been pointing Princess Jen for the Lady's Secret since her explosive win in the $30,000 Majorette Handicap over seven furlongs at Louisiana Downs on Oct. 5. She rallied from last to first, winning by a half-length ahead of stakes winners Cielo Girl and Prized Amberpro.

"She probably ran the best race of her career," Campisano said.

Tim Doocy will ride Princess Jen, who has won 11 of 29 career starts for owner Young Stables.

One of her chief rivals will be Gigi's Skyflyer. A half-sister to multiple stakes winner Voladora, Gigi's Skyflyer seeks her third straight win. She has used front-running tactics to win her last two races. Her most recent effort was a powerful 3 1/2-length win over 3-year-old fillies in the $30,000 Senorita at Louisiana Downs on Oct. 27.

Donnie Von Hemel, who trains Gigi's Skyflyer for owner George Kleier, has given the mount to Don Pettinger.

Another 3-year-old to consider is Frilly Fun, who has finished first or second in seven of her eight career starts. She comes into the Lady's Secret on the heels of a two-length win over optional claimers in a seven furlong race at Remington.

Luis Quinonez has the mount for owner-trainer Robert Listen.
