Bipty Dash, a Louisiana-bred daughter of Heza Fast Dash claimed for just $5,000 in 2012, extended her winning streak to five on Saturday afternoon at Louisiana Downs with a neck victory in the $35,000 Party Girl Stakes (R) for state-breds. The 5-year-old mare covered 350 yards in :17.848 with Alfonso Lujan up for trainer Marty Long, who co-owns the winner with Ivan Alford.

Her career record stands at 24-13-3-1 with earnings of $223,480. She was bred by Israel Flores out of the Kentucky Jazz (TB) mare Bipity Jazz (TB).
The Game Patriot mare Patriots Toast had an early lead and held on for second. Another daughter of Game Patriot, Im Game Lets Play, took third.
