3YO AMERICAN COWGIRL Digs in to Win Churchill Allowance

AMERICAN COWGIRL won for the second time in her last three starts after taking a one mile turf allowance at Churchill Downs by a length. The 3-year-old filly by COWBOY CAL raced just behind the frontrunner heading into the far turn. She went up to challenge for the lead on the turn, took a narrow advantage in mid-stretch and battled all the way to the wire to earn the win. Back in August, AMERICAN COWGIRL was a 4 1/2-length winner in a Maiden Special Weight at Ellis Park, also at a mile. Prior to that win she had been runner-up in her last two starts, beaten a total of 1 3/4 lengths. Lifetime record: 9-2-2-0, $58,744. O-Allied Racing Stable, LLC. B-Chester Thomas. T-William Bradley.
