Ain’t Life Grand turned in a superlative effort in the $50,000 Richard Radke Memorial S. on Saturday night at Prairie Meadows, romping home a 10 3/4-length winner to give the 3-year-old Not This Time filly her first stakes win.
Not This Time, the leading Second-Crop sire of 2021, has nearly $3 million in progeny earnings, with eight stakes winners and 13 stakes horses overall.
Ain’t Life Grand pressed Two Guns through the first half-mile, then took command on her own. From there, the dark bay widened her lead with ease and was all alone in the stretch as she eased under the wire to get the mile in 1:37.05 on a fast track.
Ain’t Life Grand has won two of three starts, with one third, for owner/breeder RPM Thoroughbreds. Her earnings stand at $73,910.
