In Lingerie Defeats Older Rivals in Spinster

Gary Barber and Eclipse Thoroughbred Partners’ In Lingerie took command at midstretch and pulled away to a two-length victory over Mystical Star to win the 57th running of the $500,000 Juddmonte Spinster (G1) before a crowd of 12,646 on a brisk afternoon at Keeneland.

The victory earned a spot for In Lingerie in the $2 million Breeders’ Cup Ladies’ Classic (G1) to be run November 2 at Santa Anita.

Trained by Todd Pletcher, who also won the Spinster in 2007 with Panty Raid, and ridden by John Velazquez, In Lingerie covered the 1 1/8 miles on the main track in 1:49.42.

The victory, the third in as many starts on Polytrack for In Lingerie, a Keeneland sale graduate, was worth $300,000 and increased her earnings to $712,265 with a record of 7-4-2-1. In Lingerie is a Kentucky-bred daughter of Empire Maker out of the Storm Cat mare Cat Chat.

Juanita grabbed the lead going into the first turn with Starformer and Karlovy Vary applying token pressure as Velazquez settled In Lingerie into a stalking position on the inside.

The leading trio remained unchanged to the top of the stretch, where Mystical Star under Jose Lezcano got first run at the leaders from the outside while Velazquez waited for room. In Lingerie split horses approaching the eighth pole and easily surged past Mystical Star en route to victory.

In Lingerie returned $6.80, $3.80 and $3.20. Mystical Star returned mutuels of $5.60 and $4.60 in finishing 2¼ lengths in front of Upperline, who rallied for third under James Graham and paid $5.20 to show.

It was three-quarters of a length back to Starformer, who finished fourth and was followed in order by Tiz Miz Sue, defending champion Aruna, Kitty in a Tizzy, Karlovy Vary, Juanita and Disposablepleasure.
