SOPH STATEBRED FILLIES IN TUESDAY'S $166,499 NYSS MIKE CIPRIANI TROT
The race(s) again honor the memory of the Raceway's long-time, award-winning photographer.
Post time for the 12-race wagering card is the usual 6:50 PM, though the first ($54,833) of the sire stakes goes as the last of the four pre-program non-bettors (beginning at 5:30 PM).
Tuesday's first (second programmed) event ($55,833) is the sixth race, including Lima Novelty (Scott Zeron, post 4) returning to the Empire. The daughter of Chapter Seven, owned by Ken Jacobs and trained by Linda Toscano, is 4-for-6 since adding the straps, all the wins in statebred competition. Overall, she's 4-for-9 this season ($97,394).
Ciao Dolce (Ake Svandtedt, post 2) chased Lima Novelty around Vernon in her last try, part of a symmetrical (eight starts, two wins, two seconds, two thirds) seasonal worksheet.
The second 'carded' division-third and final-of the Cipriani ($55,833) goes as the eighth race, with defending statebred champ Lucky Ava (Svanstedt) winning the draw among the half-dozen.
The daughter of Lucky Chucky has offered up another solid season, as in four wins and three seconds in eight starts ($107,618). Svanstedt co-owns (with Little E LLC and Van Camp Trotting) and trains the lass, who's won half of her 18 career starts ($311,214).
Tribute to Seven (Scott Zeron, post 2) is thrice a winner this season, hitting the board in all but one of her seven tries, while Dew to Win (Trond Smedshammer, post 5) blew away a sire stakes field at Monticello as part of her resume.
