Groupie Doll Shakes Off Rust in Masters

Four months after she wowed the racing world with a track-record victory in the Humana Distaff (gr. I) at Churchill Downs, Groupie Doll returned to action with another impressive effort in winning the $400,600 Presque Isle Downs Masters Stakes (gr. II) Sept. 8 in Erie, Pa.

Groupie Doll, who captured the Vinery Madison Stakes (gr. I) by three lengths at Keeneland prior to her 7 1/4-length romp in the Humana Distaff May 5, has now three of six starts in 2012 with one second and two thirds. She currently ranks as the top female sprinter in the nation.

Able to track a fast pace from the near the rear of the 11-horse field at Presque Isle Downs, 7-10 favorite Groupie Doll swung into action when angled to the outside on the turn for home by jockey Rajiv Maragh. She charged home after getting the lead approaching mid-stretch for a 3 3/4-length victory.

She looked good to me in her return victory, but then I can't see the lead switch delay which some person mentioned. Either resolution not good when the picture is enlarged, less than perfect eyesight, or the distraction of the audio sounding like changing stations on a transistor radio dial (what they used in Bedrock, kiddies.) I'll re-watch the race with the sound muted and view the tiny screen. Otherwise, glad to see her versatility in that she didn't have to immediately take the lead.
