L Street Lady Scores First Stakes Victory in Xtra Heat

From the Paulick Report:

Madaket Stables’ L Street Lady, making just her third career start and first in a stakes, pressed favored Chickieness before taking over at the top of the stretch and sprinting clear to a 2 ¼-length triumph in Saturday’s $100,000 Xtra Heat at Laurel Park.

The six-furlong Xtra Heat for 3-year-old fillies is the first in the state’s series of stakes for 3-year-old fillies leading up to the Black-Eyed Susan (G2) May 19 at Pimlico Race Course. It was the first of six stakes Saturday worth $550,000 in purses on the Winter Sprintfest program, anchored by the $100,000 Spectacular Bid for 3-year-olds.

Ridden by Jevian Toledo for trainer Brittany Russell, L Street Lady ($4.80) completed the distance in 1:12.81 over a fast main track for her second straight win, both over the main track, after running third in her unveiling last October over the Laurel turf.
