Sally Fletcher A moved her record to three-for-three since coming to the U.S. for trainer Al Annunziata as the six-year-old American Ideal mare prevailed in Friday’s Fillies and Mares Open at Saratoga Casino Hotel.

Sally Fletcher A made her American debut in November when she romped in a condition race at the Spa before setting a lifetime mark last week when airing in 1:52 at Pocono Downs.

On Friday night, backed to the tune of 1-9 odds by the betting public, Blindswitch Racing Stable's Sally Fletcher A drew away late in the mile to prevail in 1:53.1 in the $19,500 Open for distaffers. Jimmy Devaux piloted the mare to her third consecutive victory. Wishy Washy Girl (Bruce Aldrich Jr.) was the runner-up in the Open for the second time in three tries while Tataria (Mark Beckwith) earned the show spot.

Annunziata, who currently sits fourth in the local trainer standings, scored a grand slam on Friday night as he also had wins with pacing mares Our Els Dream N, Glenferrie Bronte N and Traceys Desire.

Live racing continues on Saturday night at Saratoga with a 6:45pm first post.
