SPRITELY STEPS TO FIRST STAKES WIN IN HONEY BEE
East Rutherford, NJ [Nov. 8, 2008] - Spritely led from gate to wire as she earned her first stakes victory in the $60,000 Honey Bee on Saturday night at the Meadowlands.
Ridden by Mike Luzzi, Spritely [$7.80, $3.80, $2.60] repelled a challenge by Hamsa [$3.20, $2.80] on the final turn and drew off to a three-length victory. She covered the 1 1/16 miles in 1:37 1/5 over a sloppy track. It was nine lengths back to Sky Copper in third [$5.20].
Spritely's three starts prior to the Honey Bee were all at six or seven furlongs.
