From a Maryland Jockey Club release
Cal MacWilliam and Neil Teitelbaum’s Miss Behaviour was quickest down the backstretch, around the turn and through the lane to capture the $100,000 Adena Springs Miss Preakness Stakes for 3-year-old fillies Friday at Pimlico Race Course.
Sheldon Russell rode the daughter of Jump Start for trainer Phil Schoenthal. She won by 1 3/4 lengths over Stormy Novel, with post time favorite Jojo Warrior taking third. The Laurel Park-based winner covered the six-furlong distance in 1:10.85 and paid $12.
“She really has a lot of speed,” Russell said. “She broke sharp today and just carried me all the way around the track.”
As a 2-year old, Miss Behaviour won both the Sorority at Monmouth and the Matron (G2) at Belmont Park. But the Pennsylvania-bred daughter of Jump Start had lost her last three starts.
“There’s a lump in your throat, a little trepidation,” Schoenthal said. “But she beat some nice horses today.”
