2YO SWEET MARY M Sets the Pace to Maiden Special Victory

Having finished runner-up in three Maiden Specials of her four starts to date, SWEET MARY M controlled the frontend and finished much the best to win this Maiden Special by three lengths. The eighth 2-year-old winner by ALTERNATION this year broke sharply from post seven in an 11-horse field to lead the pack down the backstretch. SWEET MAY M widened her lead on the turn to three lengths and held that margin to the wire going six furlongs at Remington Park. In her other start she finished midpack in a $100,00 stakes. Lifetime record: 5-1-3-0, $54,829. O/B-Hal Browning and David Faulkner. T-Kari Craddock.
