So Long My Love captured the $11,000 Fillies and Mares Open Pace on Thursday (May 1) in Northfield Park's third race. She is owned and trained by Scott Cox of Streetsboro, Ohio. Greg Grismore was aboard for the winning drive.

So Long My Love (American Ideal-Letmedowneasy-Camluck) started from post four and led at every call, posting fractions of :27, :56.1, 1:25 and 1:53.3. She was a neck in front at the wire and the mile clocking represents a new lifetime mark. Completing the race were Up Front Kellie Jo, Sweetheart Dance, Power Everywhere, Riverdancer and Jolting Kate.

Thursday's win was the fifth victory this year, and ninth career score for So Long My Love and it bolstered her lifetime earnings to $54,253. She was an upset winner, returning $27.00 to win.
