Graceful Beauty captured the $17,500 final of the Wallflower Series on Thursday (May 21) at Northfield Park. She is owned and trained by Adam Short of Archbold, Ohio. Ronnie Wrenn Jr. was in the sulky.
The 5-year-old pacing mare had competed in three legs of the Wallflower Series leading up to Thursday's final. She proved herself to be a true force for her competition by posting two victories and a third-place finish in those legs.

Graceful Beauty (Rocknroll Hanover-Mango Hanover-Big Towner) started from post two. She led her competition at every call through fractions of :27.2, :56.4, 1:27.3 and 1:57.1, besting her competition by 1¾-lengths. Completing the race were Winemen Dine Me, Yourplaceormine, APP Panda, Feelin Outragous, Lucky L and Dream Roll.

Thursday's win was the fourth victory this year in seven starts for Graceful Beauty. That quintuplet of wins this season also represents her career. Her lifetime earnings now stand at $34,432. She was heavily favored and returned $2.80 to win. (Northfield)
