Bouquet Booth established herself as candidate for the 3-year-old filly
series at Fair Grounds this winter with a fast-closing, half-length win
in the Grade 3, $500,000 Delta Downs Princess on Saturday.
The one-mile race was part of an eight-stakes card led by the Grade 3, $1 million Delta Downs Jackpot.
Bouquet Booth ($21.20) settled in seventh early, as Grandacious took the
field through fractions of 22.17 seconds for the opening quarter, 46.98
for the half-mile and 1:12.34 for six furlongs. Bouquet Booth launched
her bid into the final turn and went on to cover the distance on a fast
track in 1:40.59.
Shaun Bridgmohan was aboard Bouquet Booth, who he also rode to a three-length maiden win last month at Keeneland.
