Flashy Lassie scores by nine lengths at Churchill Downs for freshman stallion.

Flashy Lassie became the second winner by freshman sire Flashy Bull and his first in the United States  when she scored by nine lengths at Churchill Downs May 13.

Making her first start, the 2-year-old Kentucky-bred filly won a 4 1/2-furlong maiden claiming race in :52.19 for owner Barry L.  King. Bred by Mr. and Mrs. Hugh G. King, Flashy Lassie is the first foal out of the Lemon Drop Kid  mare Lemon Pop Lassie.
