Alba’s Star

Jan. 20, 8th race, Fair Grounds, MdSpWt40k

Beyer: 80
1m, firm turf, 1:36.95
ch. f. 3, Elusive Quality–Dinner at Arlene’s, by Forestry
Owner: Vintage Thoroughbreds and Bradley Thoroughbreds
Trainer: Michael Stidham
Breeder: Godolphin and Lannister Holdings

All that said, filly was making second career start and remains interesting prospect.
