She won the Victory Ride Stakes (gr. III) last time out at odds of 39-1, and Emma's Encore proved that score no fluke when she earned her first grade I win for trainer Allen Jerkens in the $300,000 Prioress Stakes (gr. I) at Saratoga Race Course Aug. 4.
The 5-1 shot was last early in a field of six under jockey Junior Alvarado while 4-5 favorite Agave Kiss set the pace through a quarter in :22.15 and a half in :44.64. Gradually moving up as Judy the Beauty closed to take the lead in deep stretch, the daughter of Congrats got up on the outside in the shadow of the wire. Final time for the six-furlong test was 1:09.35.
Emma's Encore returned $12.40, $5.10, and $2.80 while Judy the Beauty paid $3.90 and $2.70 and Agave Kiss brought $2.20.
