4th-Louisiana Downs, $23,000, (S), Msw, 6-20, 2yo, f, 4 1/2f, :51.63, ft, 9 lengths.
LADY FLURRY (f, 2, Lord Nelson–Patchofbadweather {SW}, by Storm and a Half) blew out three furlongs from the gate in a bullet :35 4/5 (1/36) over this strip June 14 and was the 1-2 mortal to kick her career off on a winning note. Showing good speed to race widest in a line of four early, the Flurry homebred poked her red blinkers in front entering the turn and from there, it was lights out. Firmly in front as they reached the quarter pole, Lady Flurry was the recipient of a couple of superfluous cracks of the crop in the final furlong before easing home tons the best. The final time of :51.63 is just 0.03 of a second slower than the posted 4 1/2-furlong track record of :51.60 set by Sondor in the pre-hundredths days in 1984. Hot Springs native Staton Flurry raced this filly's Arkansas-bred dam with Broberg to a victory in the 2014 Lady Razorback S. and Lady Flurry is the mare's second winner from as many to start. She is also the dam of the Louisiana-bred yearling colt Loudthundrhevyrain (Star Guitar) and an Arkansas-bred colt by Army Mule foaled Mar. 12. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $13,800.
