Dreaming of Liz and Much Obliged head a field of 12 fillies going 1 1/16 miles in the Pin Oak Valley View Stakes at Keeneland Oct. 17.
Betting favorite Lucky Copy took a commanding six-length lead into the stretch, but could not find the wire in time during a desperate final sixteenth of a mile, as Closeout rallied from way back under Jamie Theriot to claim the $200,000 Pucker Up Stakes (gr. IIIT) by a half-length Sept. 6 on the Arlington Park grass.
