Blue Bell Bonnie left the field feeling "blue" in Buffalo Raceway's featured $8,800 Class A Pace for the filly and mares on Wednesday night (March 10) by taking a one-and-a-quarter length victory over Greenhilldebatable in a seasonal best of 1:57.2.

It was a great night for the driver Jim Morrill Jr., trainer Gerry Sarama and owner Mike Torcello as they combined for four winners on the evening, including the win by Blue Bell Bonnie. Morrill Jr. finished with five victories on the program.

At the start, Blue Bell Bonnie had to tussle with Greenhilldebatable on who was going to be the temptress of the timer. Blue Bell Bonnie ended up winning that distinction and set fractions of :29.1, :59 and 1:28 over the fast track.

Turning for home, Blue Bell Bonnie showed the way with the pocket-sitting Greenhilldebatable ready to pounce but she couldn't find any answers, settling for second. Wonderful World (Ray Fisher Jr.) took the show position.

Owned by Mike Torcello and trained by Gerry Sarama, it was the second win of the year for Blue Bell Bonnie (Mister Big-The Girl Can Bet). The victory for the nine-year-mare moved her 2021 earnings to $15,185 and $224,909 lifetime. She paid $5.20 to win.

Cummings had a driving double on the 11-race card.

Racing will continue on Saturday evening (March 13) at 6 p.m. (EST) with an 11-race program scheduled.
