Q.E. II Cup goes to Dayatthespa

(Louisville, KY)

The 3-year-old filly, Dayatthespa, grabbed the early lead and led all the way to capture the Queen Elizabeth Challenge Cup Saturday at Keeneland in Lexington.  The filly, ridden by Javier Castellano paid $8.60 to win.

Centre Court finished second two lengths in back of the winner. Stephanie's Kitten, the 2 to 1 betting choice wound up sixth.

Dayatthspa, who is trained by Chad Brown, could be pointed to the Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Turf race next month at Santa Anita.
