Lasting Bubbles, bred and owned by Judy Peek and trained by Ken Peek, won the 17th running of the $50,000 JEH Stallion Station Stakes on April 13 at Lone Star Park.
With Lindey Wade aboard, the 5-year-old mare by Pulling Punches stalked the pace on the outside behind favorite Cowgirl N Up, posting fractions of :22.37 and :45.20.
Lasting Bubbles, with strong urging and under the whip, took the lead with a furlong to go and powered away to win the contest for Texas-bred fillies and mares by 5 ½ lengths. Cowgirl N Up held on for the place and it was another 3 ½ lengths back to third-place finisher Im a Bear. The final time for the 6 1/2-furlong sprint was 1:16.32.
“She put me in a good position,” said jockey Lindey Wade. “She ran the lights out.”
Lasting Bubbles earned $30,000 for her win in the JEH Stallion Station Stakes, increasing her lifetime earnings to $111,002. It was her fourth win from 11 starts. For those who invested, she returned $6.20, $2.80 and $2.60.
Runner-up Cowgirl N Up, a daughter of Valor Farm stallion My Golden Song owned by Caroline Dodwell, returned $2.60, $2.40, and Im a Bear, a filly by Lane’s End Texas stallion Touch Tone owned by Tom Durant, paid $3.60 for show. Nurse Goodnight, Contucky Dirt, Patty’s Pride, Triplemental, Circustown Rose and Platinum Song completed the order of finish.
