Scattered Acres LLC’s Foreign Sultress picked up her second consecutive stakes victory at Will Rogers Downs on Saturday when she prevailed by a neck in the $55,000 RPDC Classic Distaff Stakes for Oklahoma-breds. Bred by Bob and Paulette Pogue, the 4-year-old daughter of Foreign Policy also won the Cherokee Casino Will Rogers Downs Classic Distaff Sprint Stakes in April.

Ridden by Benny Landeros for trainer Andy Gladd, Foreign Sultress set the pace from the rail in the one-mile-and-70-yard contest and fought back gamely when challenged by Sooner Superstar in deep stretch. Foreign Sultress stopped the timer at 1:43.79 and improved her record to 15-6-3-1 with earnings of $132,994.

Dwayne Scruggs and Marti Rodriguez’s Sooner Superstar, a daughter of Ra Ra Superstar ridden by Jose Angel Medina and trained by Marti Rodriguez, fought gamely to finish second.

7 Cedars Farm’s homebred Diamond Disco, by Oklahoma Equine stallion Diamond, finished third and hit the board for the seventh straight time. Gotagogotagogotago and Ribbon of Darkness finished in a dead heat for fourth with Okie Blonde and Ocean Ahumin completed the field.
