Sweet Nellie Brown Wins at Emerald Downs

Washington Hall of Fame trainer Jim Penney appears to have great depth this season in the filly and mare division at Emerald Downs.

That certainly was the case Friday evening as a festive opening night throng braved cool and rainy weather to celebrate the beginning of the track's 16th season.

Michael and Amy Feuerborn's Sis's Sis, the track's champion 3-year-old filly last year, was scratched earlier in the day with a bruised foot.

Ridden by Pedro Terrero at 119 lbs, Sweet Nellie Brown ran 5-½ furlongs in 1:03.54 on a wet-fast track and paid $6.40, $3 and $2.40 as the second choice in the wagering.
