               === Filly and Mare Sprint goes to Groupie Doll ===
 
 Arcadia,  CA (Sports  Network) - Odds-on favorite Groupie Doll broke away from
 the  competition at  the head of the  stretch on her way to winning Saturday's
 $1 million Breeders' Cup Filly and Mare Sprint at Santa Anita Park.
 
 Ridden  by Rajiv Maragh, Groupie Doll was racing in the middle of the 10-horse
 field  up the backstretch until the far turn. The 4-year-old filly, trained by
 Buff Bradley, went around the turn to join the leaders and went to the lead at
 the top of the stretch.
 
 Groupie Doll, the 7-10 favorite, drove through the stretch to register a four-
 length  victory  over 9-2 second  pick Dust  and Diamonds. Finishing third was
 Switch  with Belle  of the  Hall fourth.  Last year's  winner Musical  Romance
 finished off the board.
 
 Co-owned  by Bradley,  Groupie Doll covered the seven-furlongs in 1:20.72 on a
 fast track.
 
 Groupie  Doll  adds $540,000  to her  earnings. The  filly has  won nine of 16
 career  starts for  $1.6  million. The  Filly  and Mare  Sprint  is her  fifth
 straight stakes win.
 
 Groupie Doll paid $3.40, $2.60 and $2.10. Dust and Diamonds returned $4.20 and
 $3.20, and Switch paid $3.60 to show.
