Her Emmynency and JFlorent Geroux after winning the Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup
With just three weeks before the Breeders' Cup, most possible entrants have already run their final preps and are training up to the big weekend. However, there is still plenty of stakes action around the country, especially at Keeneland during its prestigious Fall Meet. One of the traditional features at the Lexington oval in October is the $500,000 Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup (G3), an invitational for 3-year-old fillies at 1 1/8 miles on the turf. A crowd of 18,271 was on hand on Saturday afternoon, when a field of nine faced the starter in the main event. 2006 champion juvenile filly Miss Temple City was sent off as the lukewarm 2-1 favorite, coming off three consecutive wins including the Pucker Up at Arlington last out.
