Jerold’s Princess let the early leaders duel, then went outside for the stretch run en route to a 1 1/2-length victory in the 2-year-old fillies’ division of Sunday’s $69,590 Louisiana Futurity.

Lance’s Live, the 3-2 favorite, rallied from fourth and paid $3 and $2.80. Classy Bayou showed for $4.20.
Peach of It rallied from off the pace to secure command inside the final eighth of a mile and gallop to a five-length victory in the $51,475 Quick Reward Breeders’ Cup States at Hawthorne Race Course in Chicago.
Peach of It, the only Illinois-registered starter in the seven-entry field of 3-year-old horses, scored her third straight victory.
