NEWBORN SASSY WINS FRIDAY NIGHT 44G DISTAFF DERBY
Away alertly from assigned post position No. 5, Newborn Sassy worked around Caviart Cherie, making the lead before a 27.4 opening quarter-mile. She then pilfered a 29.2 second quarter (57.1 intermission), effectively ending the melodrama.
Agent Q (birthday boy  Eric Goodell) tried it first-up third from third, speeding up the sojourn but never getting close in and out of a 1:24.3 three-quarters.
With that foe dispensed, Newborn Sassy opened a length-and-a-quarter lead into the lane. She then beat the other ladies up widening to 33/4 lengths at the 1:52.3 wire.
Second went to Caviart Cherie, with a third-over Magic Forces (George Brennan) third. Bronze Over N (Dan Dube) and Made of Jewel AS (Joe Bongiorno) settled for the minors.
For Newborn Sassy, a 5-year-old daughter of Western Ideal owned by CC Racing & Joann Looney-King and trained by Jim King Jr., it was her sixth win in in 23 seasonal starts. The exacta paid $6.20, the triple returned $122.50 and the superfecta paid $657.
