The Prioress was named after the first American-bred and owned thoroughbred to win in England. A daughter of Sovereign, out of the Glencoe mare Reel, Prioress was descended from the Darley Arabian line and was foaled in South Carolina in 1853. The bay filly was purchased and taken to England in 1856 by Richard Ten Broeck; there she won the Great Yorkshire Stakes and the Cesare Witch Handicap in 1858, taking the latter in a runoff after finishing in a triple dead heat. First run at Jamaica in 1948, the Prioress moved to Aqueduct Racetrack in 1959, and then to Saratoga in 1987. Here in the 70th running of this stakes test, #2 SISTER KAN, a 12-1 BOMB, has hit the board in each of her last five outings, winning four times, including back-to-back-to-back "POWER RUN WINS" in her last three starts. #1 STUDENT BODY, a 6-1 shot, qualifies as a TrackMaster PLUS "PowerPony," is the overall speed and pace profile leader, and comes off an impressive 11-length, "POWER RUN WIN" in her last start, which the 2nd win in her 3 race career to date.
