Stolen Glory set most of the early fractions with Go No Go pressing her from the outside into the stretch. Go No Go eventually took the lead and it looked like the race was over. However, Another Bond Girl managed to get out of trouble, moving to the outside of traffic and finishing strongly to win by a neck under jockey Glen Murphy in 1:12.41 for six furlongs.
Away at 16-1 odds, Another Bond Girl paid $34.20 to win, $12.60 to place and $6.20 to show. Go No Go held second and paid $5.40 to place and $3.60 to show. Stolen Glory was a half-length back in third and paid $3.40 for the show.
Trained by Davidson, Another Bond Girl won her second race from five attempts in defeating 10 other 2-year-old Oklahoma-bred fillies. She banked the winner’s share of $52,200 for her exciting finish, boosting her total earnings to $82,188.
Davidson and Murphy teamed to win their second Classics Lassie. They were also triumphant in the 2012 edition with Motivare. Overall, it was the eighth Oklahoma Classics win for Murphy.
