Mr. Greeley filly emerging as budding star


Thursday, September 24, 2009 |
Boodles, a $700,000 2-year-old purchase a year ago, appears to have a bright future in stakes company after the speedy daughter of Mr. Greeley stayed perfect in three starts with a dazzling 4 ¼-length allowance win on Sept. 23rd at Delaware Park.

Flashing her usual sharp speed, Boodles cruised through quick fractions of 21.51 seconds and a half in 45.02 seconds before drawing off in the five-furlong contest to finish all alone at the wire. The final time was a crisp 57.38 seconds over a fast local dirt track, earning her a lifetime-high 91 Beyer Speed Figure.

Trained by Anthony Dutrow, it was Boodles's second straight win by 4 ¼ lengths, as the striking 3-year-old chestnut scored by that margin of victory in an entry-level allowance last month at Delaware. Prior to that, she broke her maiden at first asking at Philadelphia Park in July.

Boodles moved her earnings to $78,600 for owner Rick Porter and his Fox Hill Farms racing stable, who bought the flawless filly at the Fasig-Tipton Two-Year-Olds In Training sale in Miami. She was bred in Kentucky by Bruce Kline, Nick Strong, Randy Swanson & John Britton, and is out of the Phone Trick mare Tricky Laura.
