Spice Queen, a 5-year-old mare by Yankee Glide out of The Big Enchilada, ws making her second start of the season for trainer Trond Smedshammer and owner Herb Liverman. Liverman bought the mare in November of her 3-year-old season, bidding $230,000 for her at Harrisburg. She was bred to Muscles Yankee in 2008 and put back in training with Smedshammer later in the year.
