War Flag Wins Flower Bowl Stakes at Belmont Park
The $500,000 G1 Flower Bowl Stakes went down Sunday, October 8 at Belmont Park in Elmont, New York. Fillies and mares three years old and upward took to Belmont Park's Inner turf track and raced 1 1/4 miles. 9-1 shot War Flag finally broke through in her first start against top level company, prevailing by a head and in turn securing an automatic berth into the Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Turf at Del Mar. 4-1 third choice Dacita finished an OK second in the field of six with even-money favorite Grand Jete a length back in third. Beauly came in fourth, with Guilty Twelve fifth, and 8-5 second choice Zhukova completing the order of finish.
