In the Grade 3, $150,000 Matchmaker Stakes, it was the Irish-bred I’m So Fancy who made every pole a winning one as she proved best of the three fillies and mares completing the turf test at 1 1/8 miles.

Owned by Lael Stables and trained by Arnaud Delacour, she shook free entering the far turn, and then held on late to stave off a fast-closing and favored Competitionofideas and win by a neck.

I’m So Fancy, making only her third start in America, paid $5.80 and won her second straight stakes race and fifth overall lifetime.

In addition to the trophy the winning owner gets to choose a future date for I’m So Fancy with one of three designated WinStar stallions, Yoshida, Audible or Paynter.

The runner-up has second choice and the third-place finisher gets the remaining stallion.
