Lovely Maria earns first stakes win in Ashland
The Larry Jones-trained filly not only earned her first stakes score, she gave jockey Kerwin Clark his first career Grade 1 win after decades in the saddle.
The duo ran down Angela Renee (Bernardini) in the lane before opening up to finish 1 1/16 miles on the fast dirt in 1:43 3/5. Lovely Maria earned 100 points toward a starting berth in the May 1 Kentucky Oaks (G1) at Churchill Downs.
Angela Renee was best of the rest in second, and takes home 40 points toward a spot in the Oaks gate. Silverpocketsfull (Indian Charlie) was awarded 20 points and Ashland fourth-placer Lassofthemohicans (Indian Charlie) garnered 10 points.
