FAVORED PEOPLE'S PRINCESS WINS WILLIAM J. MCGINLEY HANDICAP
ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. (July 14, 2001) -- The Thoroughbred Corp.'s People's Princess rallied from off the pace to post a 1¾-length victory in the $57,420 William J. McGinley Handicap Saturday at Arlington Park. Rene Douglas rode the Bill Mott-trained daughter of Meadowlake who covered the one-mile distance over a fast track in 1:37.32.
The win, worth $33,000, was her fifth in 12 career trips to the post and boosted her earnings past the $200,000 mark to $200,065.
People's Princess sat in sixth position for the first half mile of the race, commenced a rally at the top of the stretch, put a head in front mid-stretch and drew off to the final margin.
"I knew there was going to be a lot of speed in the race," said Douglas. "Her form (past performances) says she like to sit five, six lengths behind. I had her in a perfect spot. She got a little aggressive with me about the half-mile pole but I waited on her. I had a lot of horse left. She just took off. She's a nice filly."
Adam's Time made a late rally to finish second, three lengths clear of Magic Motel, who closed late to finish third. Sumthingtotalkabout, Linda Love, Nancybdancing, Ashleigh's Jet and Dancing Lesley completed the order of finish.
Dashing Lesley made most of the pace while battling Sumthingtotalkabout, taking the field of eight distaffers through fractions 23.48 seconds for the quarter, 46.61 seconds for a half-mile and a three-quarter mile split of 1:11.38 before fading to last.
Sent off as the 6-5 favorite, People's Princess paid $4.40, $3.00 and $2.60. Adam's Time paid $5.20 and $3.60. Magic Motel returned $5.40.
