Jean Elizabeth Extends Streak in Whimsical

Breaking from the rail as the 3/5 favorite under David Moran, Jean Elizabeth shot straight to the lead and held a decent advantage through the far turn while posting opening fractions of :22.36 and :44.78.

Still under a hand ride at the top of the stretch, Jean Elizabeth only needed a few light taps to be kept to task, crossing confidently-handled to win by 1 length. She completed the 6-furlong sprint over the fast all weather track in a final time of 1:09.86.

“She’s a rocket,” said Moran, aboard for the first time. “I wasn’t expecting her to be that quick with her ears pricked down the back.”

Painting was a fast-gaining second by 1 3/4 lengths over Summer Sunday and Charmaine’s Mia. Completing the order of finish came Foxxy BelleGamble’s CandyWestern CurlEllybOde to Joy, and Alnilah.

Jean Elizabeth’s win improved her record to 21-15-4-2 with $662,786 earned. The Illinois-bred 5-year-old Adios Charlie mare is co-owned by Rivelli, Richard Ravin (who co-bred her with Rivelli), and Patricia’s Hope.

Jean Elizabeth returned $3.40 to win, $3.10 to place, and $2.20 to show. Painting brought back $8.10 to place and $4.90 to show, while Summer Sunday paid $3.20 to show.
