Cairo Prince Filly Pulls Off Shocker In Maddie May S.

Cairo Prince | Equisport

The eighth running of the Maddie May S. at Aqueduct Racetrack on Sunday afternoon was a memorable one, as Cairo Sugar (Cairo Prince–Spun Sugar, by Awesome Again) pulled off a 27-1 upset over 1-1 favorite, Les Bon Temps (Laoban).

Racing along the rail, the longshot seized the lead down the backstretch and controlled the pace out on the engine. Turning back several rivals rounding the far turn, the eventual winner outlasted them all past the sixteenth marker to win over the late-charging chalk by over a length. The final running time was 1:38.44.

The winner broke her maiden at fifth-asking last out going a mile at the 'Big A' against state-bred company Jan. 19 to score by five-lengths.
