2YO ONE LAST EMPRESS Runner-up in Stakes Debut

Coming off a strong win in a Maiden Special last out, ONE LAST EMPRESS put in a strong performance against males to finish runner-up in the Iowa Stallion Futurity, beaten less than a length. The 2-year-old filly by DAAHER stalked the frontrunner from the outset, lost a little ground on the turn, but closed the gap in the final furlong to make it close going 5 1/2 furlongs at Prairie Meadows. ONE LAST EMPRESS was over seven lengths in front of the third-place finisher. Out of the Empire Maker mare, Swift Empress, this was only her third career start and was coming off a 5 1/2-length Maiden Special Weight score just two weeks ago.
