Lady Shipman wins $100,000 Coronation Cup at Saratoga Race Course


SARATOGA SPRINGS, New York — Lady Shipman continued her winning ways with a dominating 3 ¼-length victory in the $100,000 Coronation Cup Monday at Saratoga Race Course.

Back in against fellow 3-year-old fillies after beating older horses in her previous start, Lady Shipman ran 5 ½ furlongs in 1:00.85, two-tenths of a second off the inner turf course record.

Ridden by Eduardo Nunez for trainer Kathleen O'Connell, Lady Shipman paid $3.40, $2.70 and $2.40 as the 3-5 favorite in a field of nine.

Miss Ella, making her grass debut, returned $4.50 and $4.40 for second, 3 ½ lengths ahead of 55-1 long shot Darling Sky, who paid $12.20 to show.

In the co-feature, African Oil swept from last to first on the far turn and held on to win the rescheduled $75,000 Jonathan Kiser Novice Stakes by 1 ¾ lengths over Selection Sunday.

Originally carded for July 30, the 2 1/16-mile steeplechase event was postponed due to heavy rain. Ridden by Bernard Dalton, African Oil paid $10.20, $4.40 and $3.60, while Selection Sunday returned $4.90 and $3.70. Mandola paid $3.60 to show.
