ALBANY -- Lady Railrider, the 3-to-5 favorite ridden by Frank Alvarado, took command from pacesetter You Lift Me Up at the top of the stretch and scored an easy three-length victory in the $75,000 Work The Crowd Stakes at Golden Gate Fields Saturday.

Earning her second Golden Gate Fields stakes win in less than four months, Lady Railrider captured the 1 1/16-mile feature for California-bred fillies and mares in 1:44.17 on the synthetic Tapeta racing surface.

You Lift Me Up, ridden by Russell Baze, took second by six lengths over Film Editor while Shes a Lucky Wager checked in last in the field of four.

Lady Railrider tracked You Lift Me Up from the start and was never more than a length behind the front-runner.

"I just wanted to make sure Russell didn't get an easy lead," said Alvarado. "His filly can steal a race if you leave her alone. We kept her honest and my filly finished strong. From the three-sixteenths pole to home she did it real easy."

Lady Railrider is trained by Steve Specht, who also saddled Shes a Lucky Wager.

"[Lady Railrider] is honest, she tries every time and she can run long, short and on turf," said Specht. "She's had problems with quarter cracks (cracks in a hoof), so you've got to keep an eye on that foot. She'll continue to get better. We're looking at a race on the Gold Rush program at Hollywood Park."

Specht added that the races under consideration for Lady Railrider are the $150,000 B. Thoughtful Stakes, a seven-furlong event, or the $150,000 Fran's Valentine Stakes, a 1 1/16-mile turf race. Both races are for California-bred fillies and mares and will be run on Saturday, April 25.

Lady Railrider, owned and bred by Mr. and Mrs. Larry D. Williams, is a 4-year-old filly by Ride the Rails. Lady Railrider has five wins, five seconds and two thirds in 15 career starts and Saturday's $45,000 payday boosted her earnings to $288,700.
