Trace of Grace Leads 1-2 Finish for Houghton in Plum Pretty

WMT Stable’s Trace of Grace held off a late inside run from stablemate Trolley Ride to win the $100,000 Plum Pretty Stakes for Pennsylvania-bred fillies and mares Saturday at Parx Racing.

The 6-year-old Petionville mare, the longer-priced of two runners sent out in the 1 1/16-mile stakes by trainer Bernie Houghton at 7-2, won by a half-length for her eighth victory in 35 career starts. Mill and Gloria finished 1 3/4 lengths back in third.

Ridden by Inoel Beato, Trace of Grace came in off a fourth in a Laurel Park allowance and a third in the Dr. Teresa Garafalo Memorial Stakes against state-breds at Parx. She improved to 5-for-16 at Parx.
