Honey Hues held off the stretch challenge from I'm Already Sexy June 7 at Churchill Downs to win the $100,000 Early Times Mint Julep Handicap (gr. III) and earn the first stakes victory of her career.
Although she is not among the 14 horses with sufficient graded stakes earnings needed to get in the starting gate, Sheer Beauty continues to work toward the Kentucky Oaks (gr. I).
A sharp rise in buybacks tempered a minimal increase in prices during the select portion of the opening day of the Texas summer yearling sale at Lone Star Park on Monday.
