Game Face Wins US Gr1 Princess Rooney Handicap

Monday, 13th July 2009

In the US at Florida's Calder racetrack, 4YO mare Game Face (Menifee-Galleon Of Gold, by Gone West) took advantage of the scratching of Indian Blessing to smash her rivals by 6.75-lengths in the US$350,000 Gr1 Princess Rooney Handicap (6 furlongs) for fillies & mares, 3YOs & up. Game Face (ridden by Edgar Prado for trainer Todd Pletcher) defeated fellow 4YO mares Keep The Peace (Touch Gold-Look Upon, by Carson City) & Orinoquia (Whywhywhy-Nice Boots Baby, by Storm Boot). The victory gave Game Face a starter's exemption for November's Gr1 Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Sprint, & took her record to 7 wins from 14 starts for US$689,349 earnings.
