Groupie Doll proved that her victory in the GI Vinery Madison S. at Keeneland Apr. 12 was legit with another tour-de-force here. Slighty favored by the Churchill Downs faithuful, the chestnut pressed Midly Offensive (Sharp Humor) through an opening quarter in :22.42. Groupie Doll began to take over while under a hard hold entering the far turn, and turned the Humana Distaff into a runaway in the stretch in a dazzling track-record setting performance. Prior to her tally in the Lexington, the 2011 GIII Gardenia S. heroine placed third in the GIII Sabin S. Feb. 25 and the GII Inside Information S. Mar. 17, both at Gulfstream Park.
