ARCADIA, Calif., Nov. 3 (UPI) -- Groupie Doll ran her winning streak to five with a runaway victory in Saturday's $1 million Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Sprint.

After tracking the leaders under jockey Rajiv Maragh, Groupie Doll came three-wide into the stretch, easily ran by Dust and Diamonds and drew off without much encouragement, winning by 4 1/2 lengths. Dust and Diamonds held second and it was a long way back to Switch in third.

Last year's winner, Musical Romance, attended the pace but faded late to finish well up the Santa Anita main track.

Groupie Doll, a 4-year-old Bowman's Band fill, ran the 7 furlongs on a fast track in 1:20.72.

She started her winning streak in April at Keeneland and continued with wins at Churchill Downs, Presque Isle Downs and back at Keeneland -- all graded stakes.

"Every race just keeps getting better," Maragh said after Saturday's win.

Dust and Diamonds came to the Breeders' Cup with a three-race winning streak, compiled at Oaklawn, Delaware Park and Belmont.
