Joe Ragsdale's Sarah Sis grabbed the lead right out of the gate and held on to that advantage the rest of the way to score a victory by a nose in the Grade 3, $200,000 Iowa Oaks at Prairie Meadows Saturday night.
Ridden by Julio Felix, the 3-year-old filly set fractions of :23.85, :48.06, and 1:12.96 on a lone lead and was able to just hold off fast-closing Pangburn to win in 1:45.17 for the mile and a sixteenth.
Sarah Sis has now won two straight races since being eased in the Kentucky Oaks May 1. Trained by Ingrid Mason, she has five wins in 10 starts.
Bred in Kentucky by Catherine Rene White DVM, Sarah Sis is by Sharp Humor out of Emerald Gal (Gilded Time). She sold to Ragsdale for $20,000 at the OBS June Sale in 2014.
