Princess Of Sylmar Wins US Gr1 Alabama Stakes
At Saratoga in the US, 3YO filly Princess Of Sylmar (Majestic Warrior-Storm Dixie, by Catienus) scored by 3.75-lengths for trainer Todd Pletcher in the US$600,000 Gr1 Alabama Stakes (10 furlongs) for 3YOs, over fellow fillies Fiftyshadesofhay (Pulpit-Quiet Kim, by Real Quiet) & Carnival Court (Street Sense-Delta Princess, by A.P. Indy). This was Princess Of Sylmar's third consecutive Gr1 success and makes her odds-on to claim the eclipse award for outstanding 3YO filly. She took her record to 7 wins (including last-start's Gr1 CCA Oaks & Gr1 Kentucky Oaks) & a placing (the Gr2 Gazelle Stakes) from 9 starts for US$1,367,220 earnings.
