Groupie Doll Strolls Home in TCA

Groupie Doll and Rajiv Maragh win the 32nd running of the Thoroughbred Club of America Grade 2 $200,000 at Keeneland Racecourse for owner Fred F. Bradley, William Bradley, Carl Hurst, and Bretn Burns, and trainer William Bradley. October 6, 2012.

Fred Bradley, trainer Buff Bradley, Carl Hurst and Brent Burns’ Groupie Doll split horses in the upper stretch and then drew off to win the Thoroughbred Club of America by 6 ½ lengths over Strike the Moon.

Ridden by Rajiv Maragh, Groupie Doll joined Informed Decision in 2009 as the only filly to win the Vinery Madison (G1) and Thoroughbred Club of America in the same year.

Groupie Doll covered the six furlongs on the main track in 1:09.21 and earned $120,000 for the victory and a berth in the $1 million Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Sprint (G1) to be run November 3 at Santa Anita. With the victory, Groupie Doll became a millionaire with earnings of $1,047,850 on a record of 15-8-3-2.

Bred by the Bradleys in Kentucky, Groupie Doll is a 4-year-old daughter of Bowman’s Band out of the Silver Deputy mare Deputy Doll.

Honey Chile and Newstouse dueled for the early lead in the field of nine with Groupie Doll tracking the leaders along the inside in mid-pack. At the head of the stretch, Maragh sent Groupie Doll between Honey Chile on the rail and Newstouse and easily pulled away.

In winning her fourth consecutive graded stake, Groupie Doll returned $2.80, $2.20 and $2.10. Strike the Moon, ridden by Jose Lezcano, returned $11.60 and $7 with Honey Chile finishing a half-length back in third under Robby Albarado and paying $3.40 to show.

It was 1 ½ lengths back to Zermatt, who was followed in order by Mega Dream, Newstouse, Sally Sally, Emma’s Encore and Giant Sensation.
