Blue Star Beauty delivered another wire-to-wire winning effort over Doober Hoozzitz and Feelin Flush in the Fillies & Mares Open Handicap Pace on Saturday afternoon at Alberta Downs.

The dust was flying as defending class champion Blue Star Beauty sprinted off the gate from post five to set up a game of "catch-me-if-you-can" in the ninth race feature. She fired off a :28.4 opening panel over the "good" track and maintained a two-length lead through middle splits of :58.2 and 1:26.3. The 4-5 favourite managed to keep her distance from her five foes through the stretch as she cruised to the wire for her second straight victory in 1:55.4.
