First career win for trainer, mare
After persisting first-up from before the half, the determined mare muscled clear of pacesetter Wickedly Devilish (Nick Steward) in the stretch for her first victory in 29 lifetime starts in 2:03.
Shay Seelster was driven by Todd Ratchford, Mary’s brother, who owns and previously trained the four-year-old mare. Mary Ratchford received her trainer’s license in January. The 19-year-old had made two starts before the win. Shay Seelster has now earned $12,014.
