Shot Gun Pennie triumphs in Lady Finger S.
Monday, September 05, 2011
Shot Gun Pennie blew right out of the gate and never looked back as the 2-year-old daughter of Speightstown cruised to a 1 1/2-length win $135,325 Lady Finger S. at Finger Lakes in upstate New York. Speightstown now has nine stakes winners in 2011 and over $4.3 million in progeny earnings for the top 12 sire.

After running greenly in her debut, when she finished fifth, at Saratoga last month, Shot Gun Pennie was all business in the Lady Finger. She timed the break perfectly and was up a length for the first half mile, then pulled away by some three lengths in the stretch before easing up late to win the six furlong contest on the sloppy surface in 1:13.65.

Shot Gun Pennie was bred in New York by Sugar Maple Farm and was sold at the Fasig-Tipton Saratoga preferred yearling sale, where she fetched a winning bid of $100,000 from her current owner Blue Devil Racing Stable.

The winner is out of Shot Gun Favorite, who amassed over $200,000 in career earnings, highlighted by wins in the OBS Sprint S. and Prairie Meadows Oaks.
