Elliesjet N came to Plainridge Park fresh off a seasonal best 1:52.1 victory at the Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono and the public took notice of that outing, capturing $15,000 Fillies and Mares Open Handicap as the 1-5 favourite on Tuesday, April 17.

Stylish Beachwhere smoked off the gate and took the girls through a :26.4 opening panel. During that span, Elliesjet N was parked third for an eighth before finding her gear and overtaking just past that first station.

Driver Greg Merton slowed the half to :55.3 and the three quarters to 1:24.3, holding a comfortable lead around the final bend. Coming through the stretch, Stylish Beachwhere, Ask Queenie and Happy Heart all made strong bids to collar the leader, but Elliesjet N was not to be caught and was a wrapped-up two-length winner in 1:53.2.

Owned by the Foulk Stables Inc. and trained by Lance Hudson, Elliesjet N, a $2.60 winner, posted her fifth 2018 victory in only nine starts and has bankrolled $30,100 for her efforts.

Racing resumes on Thursday, April 19 at Plainridge Park with the first race post time of 4 p.m.
