Burning Fancy Sets Track Record in Winning Rancho Milagro Yegua Arabian Stakes

OCTOBER 17, 2009 - LONE STAR PARK - Burning Fancy, owned by Marvin Powell and trained by Jerry Partin, set a track record in dominating the 2nd running of the seven-furlong, $9,000 Rancho Milagro Yegua Arabian Stakes, for fillies and mares, three-year-olds and upward, over a fast track at Lone Star Park on Saturday night.

Ridden by Kelsi Purcell, the 3-year-old daughter of Burning Sand never had an anxious moment in leading her eight rivals from start-to-finish. After showing first out of the gate, Burning Fancy rolled along on the lead through opening fractions of :24.70 and :49.68 before stopping the clock in 1:31.06—setting a new Arabian course record for the seven-furlong distance.

Defending champion Jessys Princess, trained by Elizabeth Brand, finished 11 ¼ lengths back in second, and it was another 25 ¾ lengths back to third-place finisher Get Her Done.

With the win, Burning Fancy improved her record to 4 wins from 6 starts and increased her career earnings to $28,760.

Burning Fancy paid $2.40, $2.20, $2.10, runner-up Jessys Princess returned $2.60, $2.40, and Get Her Done paid $5.80 for show. Oooh Lay La, Triumphs Pearl, Key Finder, Lori Anne, MW Bonnie Z, and Schakka Khan completed the order of finish.
