Drea's Good Powow (John MacDonald) wins the Fillies and Mares feature ($7,500) on Thursday night (June 8). The 7 year-old Squaws Fella mare found herself last, eight lengths back behind early front runner Looney Dune (Ben McNeil) after the first-quarter. Drea's Good Powow ($2.90) who is owned by the JP Stables and trained by MacDonald would make a first-over move just before the half. She would then blow right by and take over at the top of the stretch and win in 1:52.2. The Filly Princess (Jimmy Wittemore) would charge late and finish second. Looney Dune would hang on to finish third.
