2023 Prioress Stakes Alva Starr blew away the competition

Alva Starr confirmed the promise of her victory in the 2023 Dashing Beauty Stakes as she romped to victory in the 2023 Prioress Stakes at Saratoga.

Leading from gate to wire, she landed the biggest prize of her career and looks set to compete in some bigger races before the end of the year.

Alva Starr blew away the competition as she ran out an easy winner of this year’s Prioress Stakes.

Breaking alertly from gate four, Alva Starr’s jockey, Jose Lezcano, was keen to grab the lead and quickly bustled her to the front. From there she bagged the inside rail and set sail for home.

Hoping to keep pace with Alva Starr was the rank outsider of the field, Unchained Melody, but as they hit the far turn, the lights quickly went out and she started to backpedal through the field.

With nothing left around her, Alva Starr was left out in front with an uncontested lead. With plenty still left in the tank, Lezcano was keen to ensure she kept up to her work and she stretched further and further clear of her rivals. 

Out of sight, the race was on for second where Jersey Pearl did just enough to hold off the disappointing favorite, Dazzling Blue, who had to settle for third.
