Philadelphia Park-based Friel's For Real was the real deal in winning the $100,000 Pimlico Distaff Breeders' Cup Handicap (gr. III) at Pimlico Race Course Friday by 2 ¼ lengths over Saintly Action.
The $100,000 Doubledogdare Stakes isn't a graded event, but a number of its entrants have earned that status, giving the race a strong dose of class. Of the 11 entrants, three of them are grade II winners, and five others have won added-money races.
