Sally Fletcher Repeats In Saratoga Open

Sally Fletcher A scored in the Fillies and Mares Open for the second consecutive Friday night at Saratoga as the Jose Godinez trainee rolled to a front-running victory in 1:53.3.

Bruce Aldrich Jr. piloted the American Ideal daughter Sally Fletcher A and wasted no time retaking the lead after briefly giving way to invader Culinary Delight N (Larry Stalbaum). Happy Heart (Mark Beckwith), who was the runner-up to Sally Fletcher A in last week’s installment of the $16,000 Open for distaffers after edging her out the week before, got away last in the five-horse feature on Friday. She closed sharply when called upon on Friday but was no match for Sally Fletcher A, who recorded her seventh win of the season and did so at odds of 6-5. Happy Heart was the runner-up once again this week while Culinary Delight N had to settle for third.

The Sally Fletcher A-Happy Heart exacta, which has come in a box for three consecutive weeks now, paid $13.40.

Aldrich, Godinez and the Blindswitch Racing Stable teamed up for a second winner on the card when their Poppy Drayton N lived up to the hype as the 1-9 betting favourite in a $8,000 conditional race for fillies and mares.
