The regally-bred Pearl Earring enhanced her paddock value by no small margin over the weekend with a determined victory at Fair Grounds.
Owned by the boys in blue, Pearl Earring showed tremendous fortitude under jockey Angel Suarez to prevail by a head after a sustained duel down the Fair Grounds stretch.
This 2-year-old daughter of Astern has improved with each of her three racecourse appearances to date, and few would bet against her red-hot trainer coaxing even more improvement out of this young exciting filly.
