Ladies Sprint: Lull Could Make Her Mark

The 4-year-old mare Lull could be the first three-time winner of a Kentucky Downs stakes if she takes Saturday’s $450,000, Grade III Ladies Sprint, which is in its first year as a graded stakes. Trained by Christophe Clement, Lull won the Exacta Systems Juvenile Fillies in 2016 and the Ladies Sprint last year. She seems to thrive at that 6 1/2 or seven-furlong distance on turf.
Owned and bred by Claiborne Farm and Adele Dilschneider, Lull has earned $906,262 and has a record of 5-3-3 in 15 starts. In one of her best races, she was a close third after giving way grudgingly in Belmont’s Grade I Just a Game at a mile. In her last start she was third in a Grade II, six-furlong Royal North at Woodbine. Now she’ll be reunited with Brian Hernandez, aboard for her two wins at Kentucky Downs as the track’s all-time winningest rider.
“She’s been a fun filly,” Hernandez said recently at Churchill Downs. “She’s 2 for 2 at Kentucky Downs, and Christophe and Claiborne have done a great job spotting her down there. You have to be excited, knowing she enjoyed the course downs there and she gets over it well.”
