Trainer Jerry Donaldson sent out his second stakes winner in as many days on Wednesday as Lookinforchange rolled to a 4 ¼-length victory in the $50,000 Wilma Mankiller Memorial Stakes at Will Rogers Downs. On Tuesday, Donaldson saddled Humble Smarty to win the Clem McSpadden Memorial Route 66 Stakes at the track in Claremore, Oklahoma.

Bred in Kentucky by Lila McKinnis and Rod Edgmon and owned by Margaux Farm LLC and Vinery LTD, Lookinforchange stopped the timer at 1:10.82 for six furlongs under jockey Benny Landeros. This marked the first career stakes win for the daughter of Gilded Time, who now has a record of 24-7-3-3 with earnings of $205,914.

Clark Brewster’s Givhans Ferry, who shipped in from Fair Grounds for trainer Steve Margolis, finished a clear second. Jerry Namy’s Storm’s Promise, also from Fair Grounds, took third.
