Sweetheart of the Midwest, Miss Macy Sue, Makes a Smashing Visit to Presque Isle Downs

Erie, PA—Miss Macy Sue appears to like the Tapeta surface at Presque Isle Downs. On a surface tightened by rain and guided by jockey Eddie Razo Jr., the 4-year-old filly set a new 6-furlong record of 1.08.21, beating a record set less than a week earlier by Ravalo.

Miss Macy Sue, owned by Dennis Albaugh and Leroy Gessman, now has five wins in six starts on the year. Trainer Kelly Von Hemel (see related TRJ article on his 1,000th win) has taken his charge to six different tracks, and has come away with first-place money at five of them. An outing in stakes company at Saratoga is her only loss for the year.
