Campanile scored a wire-to-wire win in Friday’s featured $18,000 Fillies & Mares Open Handicap Pace at Saratoga Casino and Raceway.

Dismissed at odds of 7-1, Campanile moved out to the early lead and cruised through a first half in :57 before getting tested by Yonkers invader So Nice (Billy Dobson) approaching the three-quarter pole. The Chris Marino-trained Campanile, who recently moved over the half-million dollar mark in lifetime earnings, dug down for some of her back class and responded to driver Austin Siegelman’s urging turning away So Nice before drawing out to prevail in 1:53.3. Pocket-sitter La Fiesta (Bruce Aldrich Jr.) finished second while longshot Deliciouslynaughty (Stephane Bouchard) got up for third.

Campanile, who recorded her first victory in the Fillies and Mares Open in 2015, returned $16.80 to win and led an exacta and triple that paid $89.50 and $567, respectively.

The six-year-old No Pan Intended mare is owned by Michael Casalino Jr. of Freehold, New Jersey.
