Rising Star Fugitive Angel Wins Valley View

Blessed in recent years with champions Forever Together (Belong to Me) and Informed Decision (Monarchos), owner-breeder George Strawbridge and trainer Jonathan Sheppard could have another good one on their hands in the three-year-old turf filly FUGITIVE ANGEL (Alphabet Soup), who turned in a sparkling effort to win Friday's $150,000 Valley View S. (G3) at Keeneland.


Unhurried in 10th in the field of 12, Fugitive Angel was as many as 10 1/2 lengths behind 20-1 chance Ice Mist (Forest Danger), who held a comfortable lead of 2-3 lengths through splits of :23 3/5, :48, and 1:13 2/5. Ice Mist still had a lot left in the tank through the straight, but not enough to fend off Fugitive Angel, who exploded through the lane to win going away by 3 3/4 lengths. She finished up the 1 1/16-mile, firm-turf test in 1:44 under Rosie Napravnik.


Fugitive Angel, the 9-2 third choice, paid $11.60, $7.40 and $4.80. Ice Mist held second by a length, returning $17.80 and $7.80. No Explaining (Ire) (Azamour [Ire]), the 3-1 second choice who tracked in fourth most of the way, got up for the show and produced a $3.60 mutuel. The exacta paid $226.80, the trifecta $1,173.20, and the 3-9-8-11 superfecta with 12-1 chance Persuading (Broken Vow) $11,074.
