Lasting Bubbles Takes Home the Trophy in the 18th $50,000 Wayne Hanks Memorial Stakes at Lone Star Park

Grand Prairie, Texas (Saturday, April 12, 2014) - Judy Peek's Lasting Bubbles showed her class tonight taking the prize for her second consecutive win in the 18th $50,000 Wayne Hanks Memorial Stakes. The striking six-year-old gray mare by Pulling Punches loves Lone Star Park. This was her fourth win from seven starts at the Grand Prairie track and her eighth career win from 21 lifetime starts.

Trained by Kevin Peek and ridden by Chris Rosier, Lasting Bubbles raced just off the leader, was inside on the turn, shifted three wide near the quarter pole and took the lead at the top of the stretch to draw off by four and one-quarter lengths for the victory.

"I knew the pace was a little quick for her, so I stepped to the outside and gave her clear running room," said jockey Chris Rosier. "It was all the horse. I just had to hang on."

Final time for the six and one half furlongs was 1:18.52 over a fast track with fractions of 22.59 and 45.69. Second went to Joyful Hannah trained by Jimmy Dodwell and Nurse Goodnight ran third for trainer Allen Milligan.

Lasting Bubbles earned $30,000 for the win increasing her lifetime earnings to $260,081. Mutuel payoffs were $3.60, $2.60 and $2.20. Runner-up Joyful Hannah returned $4.60 and $3.80. Nurse Goodnight paid $4.80 to show. My Golden Belle, Molly's Honour, Flashy Pearl, Expect Royalty and Wimbledon Star completed the order of finish.
