Echo Zulu won the eighth race of her career and the second successive graded race of 2023 with an all-the-way win in this year’s Honorable Miss Handicap.

Jumping alertly from gate 1, Honorable Miss’s jockey Florent Geroux was keen to get Echo Zulu to the front of affairs.

Securing the position he wanted, Geroux loosened the reigns and was more than happy to let his mount burn up the home straight.

With the pace fast and frenetic, Maryquitecontrary was the first to feel the pinch and quickly dropped out of contention.

With just three horses left in the running, it was Franks Rockette who tried to keep close tabs on the speedy favorite.

Rounding the home turn together, Franks Rockette tried to muscle past Echo Zulu but found the multiple-graded winner too tough to pass.

With Franks Rockette fading, the race was Echo Zulu’s to lose. Still full of running, she bounded down the home straight and left her rivals in the dust. Powering to the line, she would win by eight lengths. Dr B would pinch a second from the tiring Franks Rockette.
