3YO DECOUPAGE Sets All the Fractions in Allowance Score
DECOUPAGE has now won three of her last six starts and put up back-to-back scores after taking this allowance race by 1 1/4 lengths. The 3-year-old filly from the second crop of ALTERNATION dueled with another early on the outside while in hand. She had disposed of that one by the top of the stretch, then opened up a bit on the field and was never really challenged to the wire at Penn National. DECOUPAGE set fractions of :21 4/5, :44 3/5, and :56 3/5, before finishing the six furlongs in 1:09 2/5, just a second off the track record. She was coming off a five-length allowance tally here in June. Lifetime record: 8-3-1-0, $58,139. O/B-Dr. Stephen G. Jackson & Debbie Jackson. T-Flint Stites.
