"Hooh Why" Pulls Upset In Ashland Stakes

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Hooh Why pulled a huge upset Saturday in
the Ashland Stakes at Keeneland, foiling Stardom Bound's attempt at
a sixth consecutive Grade I win.
With substitute jockey Corey Lanerie aboard, Hooh Why took the
lead at the quarter pole and never relinquished it. Gozzip Girl was
a neck behind. Stardom Bound, better than an even-money favorite,
had to settle for third.
Hooh Why was the second longest shot on the board at 24-1. She
won for the third time in 10 lifetime starts but for the first time
in a Grade I race. Next up is likely an appearance in the Kentucky
Oaks at Churchill Downs.
Hooh Why paid $50, $15.40 and $6.20. Gozzip Girl returned $8.80
and $4.20. Stardom Bound was $2.10 to show.
