Jo Ann Looney-King's Purrfect Bags was a 1:52.2 winner Tuesday in the $16,000 Mares Open at Harrington Raceway.
Purrfect Bags, the 3-5 favorite, left from post position 3 and set fractions of :27.1, :56.1 and 1:24 while 4-to-1 Hostess Lisa mounted her attack first-over, but Purrfect Bags held her six rivals safe as she prevailed with ease by open lengths. Hostess Lisa finished second with Empress Deo third.
Purrfect Bags, a 4-year-old Roddys Bags Again mare trained by Looney-King, notched her 20th career win and figures to be one of the favorites in the $30,000 Legislator's Cup at Harrington on July 28.
Use Your Noodle ($6.60, Jim Morand), one of only two fillies in the field, notched a 1:54.1 victory in an $11,000 conditioned pace for trainer/co-owner Les Givens. The Artzina-sired filly recorded her eighth lifetime win in preparation of the $100,000 DSBF Final event on July 28. (Harrington)
