Lazy Lane Farms, Inc.’s Trophy Collector, by Strong Hope, out of Silent Greeting by Secret Hello, passing five horses in the final furlong, reached the wire just in time to secure her first career stakes victory in Sunday’s $50,000 Oakley presented by the Middleburg Training Center at Colonial Downs.

Ninth of 11 through the first three furlongs of the 5 1/2-furlong turf sprint for Virginia-bred and Virginia-sired fillies and mares, the 3-year-old Trophy Collector ($7.80) was still only sixth, some three lengths behind, at the eighth pole. But she rallied between horses under Eric Camacho and prevailed by a head over 10-1 shot R. Larry Johnson’s And a Cherry Tree, completing the distance over a course rated good in 1:06.30.

Doris E. Jones’ Shesabopper was a neck behind And a Cherry Tree at 37-1, and a neck in front of the fourth-place finisher, Hidden Point Farm, Inc.’s Huge.

Ever Green Racing’s River Fancy, second with a furlong remaining, faded to 10th as the 9-5 favorite.

Trained by Rodney Jenkins, Trophy Collector was making her first start on grass after winning 2 of 5 starts on dirt. In her stakes debut last time out, she finished third of five in the Grade 3 Miss Preakness at Pimlico.
