Florence, KY (January 4, 2023 ) – Empire House, our daughter of Empire Maker, earned the second stakes victory of her career with a game score in the $75,000 Mrs. Claus Stakes going seven furlongs over the sloppy main track at Parx Racing.
Empire House drew the outside post in the field of nine. She was first out of the gate and quickly engaged in a battle for the lead. The duel lasted down the backstretch, around the turn, and with a furlong to go, Empire House took over for good. She opened a clear lead as the wire drew near and she was two and one-half lengths best at the finish.
Empire House has won or placed in eleven of her twenty-five career starts and she has earned $238,995. Trained by Jonathan Wong, she was bred in Kentucky by Lakland Farm. She was produced by the Mineshaft mare, Miss Doolittle.
