Ms Flaming Finish Remains Undefeated For 2024 With Three Stakes Wins

EVANSTON, WY–JULY 7, 2024–Ms Flaming Finish has been making the headlines for the last few months with three stakes wins and an undefeated race record for 2024. Just coming off victories in the Energy Downs 307 F&M Stakes in May and Bear River Stakes in June, she does it again on Sunday in the $23,000 Raysha's Run–Racing For A Cure Stakes at Wyoming Downs.

Cesar Moreno returns for the mount in the 350-yeard stakes aboard Ms Flaming Finish. The post-time favorite won by a nose in a photo finish over So Sixy It Hurts and clocked a 96 speed index in :17.477 seconds. The winning effort paid $3.60 on 4/5 odds.

Ms Flaming Finish has a record of 9-4-4 from 19 starts and the $13,800 paycheck from the Raysha's Run Stakes increased her earnings to $217,748.
