Dancing Edie Wins US Gr1 Mabee Handicap
In the US, 4YO mare Dancing Edie (Moscow Ballet-Duchess Of Ack, by Slewpy) "set all the pace & then fought back bids from Gr2-winner Moscow Burning & triple Gr1-winner Island Fashion during a tight 3-wide duel in the stretch to score a nose victory" in the US$400,000 Gr1 John Mabee Handicap (9 furlongs on turf) for fillies & mares at Del Mar in California, reported thoroughbredtimes.com. Dancing Edie (ridden by Corey Nakatani for trainer Craig Dollase) prevailed in a 3-way photo-finish from top-weighted 6YO mare Moscow Burning (Moscow Ballet-Burning Desire, by Mr Leader) & Island Fashion (Petionville-Danzigs Fashion, by A Native Danzig). California-bred Dancing Edie (who finished runner-up in the Gr1 Gamely Breeders' Cup Stakes at Hollywood Park earlier this season) now has 3 wins from 14 starts for US$533,580 earnings.
