JAGUAR CITY PREVAILS IN YOUR LADYSHIP HANDICAP
ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. (June 3, 2005) -- Jaguar On The Run Stable Ltd.'s Jaguar City, survived a claim of foul from the connections of third-place finisher Synco Peach to capture the $40,000 Your Ladyship Handicap on Friday at Arlington Park. James Graham rode the Slew City Slew mare who covered the seven furlongs in a meet's best 1:23.36.
In her previous start, the Frank Springer-trained 5-year-old was first through the finish line in the $100,000 Peach Of It Handicap but was disqualified from that victory and placed eighth for interference at the start of that mile and a sixteenth race.
The Your Ladyship was the first official win in four starts this year for Jaguar City who was three for seven last year while also finishing second in a pair of state-bred stakes races. The $24,000 earned here boosted her bankroll to $251,912. The Your Ladyship serves as a prep race for the $75,000 Isaac Murphy Handicap which will be raced here on June 25.
Piano Tunner rallied to finish second in the seven-horse field, a neck ahead of Synco Peach. Larry Sterling Jr., rider of Synco Peach, lodged an objection following the race alleging that the winner took away his racing room and forced him to alter course at the eighth pole. The stewards did not allow the objection and the order of finish remained unchanged.
Sent off as the 13-10 betting favorite, Jaguar City paid $4.60, $2.80 and $2.40. Piano Tunner returned $4.60 and $3.40. Synco Peach paid $3.80.
Miss Outrageous, Fighting Fever, Meadow Bride and Real Deal completed the order of finish.
