Five Star Fun Wins at Fair Grounds

Columbine Stable’s Five Star Fun was no disappointment to the fans who backed her down to 9-to-10 favoritism at Fair Grounds Thursday, winning the featured $32,000 fifth race at about 5 1/2 furlongs over the Stall-Wilson turf course by a length with a front-running score under jockey Shane Sellers.

 

Trained by Al Stall Jr., Five Star Fun was away alertly and quickly in command, set early fractions of 22.48 and 46.87 before negotiating the final distance in 1:05.37, increased her career earnings to $64,860 with her third win in five lifetime starts and returned mutuels of $3.80, $2.40 and $2.20.

 

Keith Plaisance’s Palazzo Babe was clearly second best, paying $4.40 and $3.40 to place while finishing three lengths to the good of H & H Ranch’s Badness, who returned $4.20 to show.

 

Racing resumes Friday at Fair Grounds with the third Starlight Racing session of the current season, offering a special nine-race program beginning at 5 p.m.
