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. But Sweet Nellie Brown—also trained by Penney—rallied from off the pace for a one-length victory over Rewritten in the $21,000 Sports Radio 950 KJR Purse for older fillies and mares.

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.
