In Lingerie wins Juddmonte Spinster

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - In Lingerie won the Grade 1 Juddmonte Spinster on Sunday at Keeneland to cap a big weekend for leading trainer Todd Pletcher.

Pletcher won two Grade 1 races Saturday at Belmont, with Dreaming of Julia taking the Frizette and Shanghai Bobby the Champagne Stakes. Pletcher's e Bridgetown also won the Grade 3 Woodford at Keeneland on Saturday.

Ridden by John Velazquez, In Lingerie bided her time along the rail on the backstretch before angling out for running room in the final furlong and powering home to a two-length victory over Mystical Star.

``She had a perfect trip,'' said Velazquez, who also rode Dreaming of Julia in the Frizette. ``Once I got out at the 16th pole and she was in the clear she responded right away. I'm very proud of her.''

In Lingerie ran 1 1/8 miles in 1:49.42 to become the first 3-year-old to win the Spinster - Keeneland's premier event on the main track for fillies and mares - since Pletcher's Panty Raid in 2007.

The $300,000 winner's share of the $500,000 purse pushed her lifetime bankroll to $712,265 with a record of 4-2-1 in seven starts. The victory earned her an automatic spot in the Breeders' Cup Ladies' Classic, set for Nov. 2 at Santa Anita, but Pletcher said he might consider other options for the daughter of Empire Maker who is undefeated in three starts on a synthetic surface.

``I'd say she's the kind you could look at a couple of different races with,'' Pletcher said.

In Lingerie paid $6.80, $3.80 and $3.20. Mystical Star returned $5.60 and $4.60, and Upperline paid $5.20 to show. Aruna, last year's winner, was sixth.

Balance the Books rallied late to win the Grade 3 $150,000 Bourbon Stakes by a nose over Really Sharp, who was disqualified to sixth for interference in the stretch.

Balance the Books paid $3.80, $2.80 and $2.40. Brown Almighty, elevated to second, returned $4.60 and $3.40, and Sonofasamurai paid $4.40 to show.

Ridden by Julien Leparoux and trained by Chad Brown, Balance the Books ran 1 1/16 miles on the turf in 1:45.15. His second victory in three career starts earned a guaranteed berth in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf at Santa Anita on Nov. 3.

``This horse is getting bigger and stronger, and it's on to the Breeders' Cup,'' Brown said.
