Love in the Air the first of Constitution’s two Saturday stakes winners

Love in the Air scored her second straight stakes win on Saturday at Parx with a two-length victory in the $200,000 Plum Pretty S.

She was the first of two stakes winners on the card for Constitution, who also accounted for the Greenwood Cup (G3) with Ridin With Biden. Constitution now has a dozen stakes winners for the year.

Like she did in her Mrs. Penny S. a month ago on this same track, Love in the Air took the top spot right from the gate. She was pressed by Midnight Obsession through a half-mile in :48.43, leading by just a head at that point. She edged clear on the turn, when odds-on favorite Leader of the Band made a run at her, but Love in the Air dispatched her foe and went on to win comfortably.

The final time for the 1 1/16-miles on a fast track was 1:42.69.

Love in the Air was bred by Blackstone Stable, LLC and is owned by Main Line Racing Stable. The 4-year-old originally sold for $280,000 at the 2019 Keeneland September Yearling sale.

Love in the Air has earned $305,331 and is 4-4-3 in 12 starts.
