David Holloway’s Dubious Miss assumed control approaching the top of the stretch and drew clear to post a two-length victory over Spotsgone in the $60,747 feature race on Sunday’s Father’s Day card at Churchill Downs.
Ridden by Calvin Borel, Dubious Miss tracked Spotsgone until slipping through along the inside leaving the backstretch. The two horses raced on even terms until Dubious Miss took command en route to his fourth win in five starts on the main track at Churchill Downs.
Dubious Miss, a 5-year-old Kentucky-bred son of E Dubai, covered the 1 1/16 miles on a sloppy main track in 1:42.91. Spotsgone easily held second place under Jon Court, finishing four lengths in front of Antrim County, ridden by Larry Sterling Jr.
Trained by Paul McGee, Dubious Miss returned $3.60, $2.80 and $2.10 in defeating five allowance rivals. Spotsgone returned $6.40 and $4 with Antrim County paying $3.40 to show.
The victory was worth $37,465 and increased Dubious Miss’ career earnings to $202,599 with six victories in 11 starts.
Racing resumes Thursday with a nine-race card beginning at 12:45 p.m. EDT.
