Michigan-bred Cashier's Dream remained undefeated when posting a 3 1/2-length win in Saturday's $110,500 Debutante Stakes (gr. III) at Churchill Downs. The 2-year-old daughter of Service Stripe led all the way and stopped the timer in 1:02.52 after completing the 5 1/2 furlongs on a fast track under Donnie Meche. The winning time eclipses Leelanau's track record of 1:03.11 established earlier in the meet.
