Driver Jody Jamieson ensured Free Show lived up to her name as the rookie pacing filly was responsible for a dominant and impressive performance in the $141,246 Battle of the Belles Final.


Jamieson wheeled Free Show out of post four and managed early position on the front ahead of Betty Hill (Johnathan Drury) and Golden Idol (James MacDonald) through a relaxed :28 opening quarter. Mattjestic Tempo (Doug McNair) settled into fourth ahead of elim winner Tempus Seelster (Travis Henry), and that duo started the first over attack just past the opening quarter.


Free Show continued to roll through fractions of :58 and 1:27.2, at which point the first over bids began to soften. Jamieson and Free Show started to accelerate around the far turn and weren't in any danger down the stretch with powerful strides and the wire reached in 1:56.3. The win margin was more than three lengths, with Betty Hill and Golden Idol completing the top three.


Free Show has never been worse than second in four lifetime starts, now boasting a 2-2-0 summary. Owned by Hutt Racing Stable of Paoli, Penn., Free Show (Badlands Hanover - Free Admission) is trained by David Menary. Jamieson and Menary also teamed up for a Battle of the Belles win in 2012 with Macharoundtheclock.
