Bailey’s Wish captured the $42,500 Violet Stake on Oct. 27 at Balmoral Park.
The Illinois-bred 2-year-old filly was driven to victory by Dave Magee to a 2:00.2 triumph by 2¼ lengths.
Owned by James Bafia & Eugene White, Bailey’s Wish is trained by Dirk Simpson at his home base of the Illinois State Fairgrounds at Springfield.
The daughter of Southwind Breeze, out of the unraced Valley Victor mare Jen, now has five wins, a pair of seconds and two thirds in 13 career starts, and earnings of $110,210.
Bred by Roger Welch and Kevin Kline of Illinois, Bailey’s Wish is the first foal out of her dam, and was a $14,500 yearling purchase at the 2012 Walker Standardbred Sale.
