Fluffy Socks kicks off Preakness Day racing with victory in Selima Stakes

Oct 3, 2020

Fluffy Socks kicks off Preakness Day racing with victory in Selima Stakes Oct 03, 2020 at 12:56 PM Fluffy Socks, stepping up off her maiden win last month, scooted through an opening along the rail and surged past favored leader Invincible Gal to win the $150,000 Selima on Saturday at Pimlico Race Course. The 91st running of the 1 1/16-mile Selima for 2-year-old fillies on the grass kicked off an all-stakes Preakness Day program of 12 races featuring the $1 million Preakness and $250,000 Black-Eyed Susan. Advertisement This was only the fourth time the Selima was run at Pimlico and first since Hear Us Roar’s victory in 2004. Other editions on Old Hilltop came in 1943 and 1979. Trevor McCarthy, Maryland’s four-time champion jockey, was unhurried on Fluffy Socks, a homebred by owner Head of Plains Partners, near the back of the pack as maiden Domain Expertise and 8-5 top choice Invincible Gal duked it out up front through fractions of 25.57 seconds, 51.36 and 1:17.17. While waiting for room at the top of the stretch, McCarthy found a seam and sailed through to win by 2 ¼ lengths in 1:50.74 over the yielding course. Advertisement Invincible Gal, unlucky runner-up in the one-mile Sorority, finished second with 21-1 long shot Tic Tic Tic Boom getting up for third. Invincible Gal is trained by Graham Motion, who captured last year’s Selima with subsequent Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf winner Sharing. It was the second Selima win for McCarthy following Ruby Notion in 2015. Fluffy Socks, by British-bred Slumber, debuted running fifth Aug. 9 at Saratoga prior to her maiden score going a mile Sept. 7 at Kentucky Downs. First run in 1926, the Selima is named for the great English race mare who was imported to the U.S. in the 1750s by Benjamin Tasker Jr., manager of the famed Belair Farm in Prince George’s County. The daughter of the Godolphin Arabian, considered ‘Queen of the Turf,’ also gained fame as a broodmare. Skipat Stakes R. Larry Johnson’s Maryland homebred Never Enough Time shook off the pressure of Liza Star early and got to the wire three-quarters of a length ahead of a trio of late challengers in the $100,000 Skipat at Pimlico. The 27th running of the 6-furlong Skipat for fillies and mares 3 and up, named for the Barbara Fritchie (G3) winner of 1979 and 1981 among her 26 lifetime victories, was third on a 12-race, all-stakes Preakness Day program. Never Enough Time ($7), fifth in the Miss Preakness (G3) on last year’s Preakness undercard, earned her second consecutive stakes victory following the Sept. 5 Alma North at Laurel Park. Trainer Mike Trombetta previously won the Skipat in 2004 with Love You Madly. Jockey Julian Pimentel and Never Enough Time out-hustled Florent Geroux and Liza Star to the front, leading through fractions of 23.46, 46.03 and 57.87 seconds. Liza Star dropped back as the field hit the top of the stretch, leaving Never Enough Time with enough of a cushion to get to the wire as eight-time stakes winner Bronx Beauty, Bye Bye J and S W Briar Rose came running late. Bronx Beauty, a narrow favorite at 2-1, was second, followed by Bye Bye J, S W Briar Rose, Liza Star and Last True Love. Chalon, the defending champion and program favorite, was scratched. Never Enough Time, a 4-year-old daughter of graded-stakes winning sprinter Munnings, now owns five wins from nine career starts and is three-for-five this year. Latest Horse Racing Oct 2, 2020
