SOPH STATEBRED FILLIES IN TUESDAY'S $166,499 NYSS MIKE CIPRIANI TROT
The races again honored the memory of the Raceway's long-time, award-winning photographer.
A five-horse, $54,833 pre-card sire stakes non-bettor was won by a stubborn, down-the-road Natalie Hanover (Jim Marohn Jr.) in 1:56.3.
Soon thereafter, Mother Nature decided to chime in,with a lightning storm delaying the dossier between the first and second races.
Tuesday's first (second programmed) event ($55,833) saw pole-sitting Supergirl Riley (Marcus Miller. ($10.60) retake from Ciao Dolce (Dan Dube), then dismiss 3-10 favorite Lima Novelty (Scott Zeron) en route to a handy-and sloppy---1:55.2 effort.
It was early intervals of 28.2, 57.3 and 1:27 before "Riley" opened a pair of lengths into the lane. She widened to 41/2 lengths at the wire, with Ciao Dolce second, Lima Novelty a tiring third and Pune Bush Rose (Jordan Stratton) fourth.
For second choice Supergirl Riley, a daughter of Muscle Mass co-owned by Paymaq Racing, George Golemes & Harvey Eisman and trained by Erv Miller, it was her first win in eight seasonal starts. The exacta paid $32.20, the triple returned $84.50 and the superfecta paid $288.50.
The $55,833 second "carded" division-third and final-of the Cipriani saw defending statebred champ Lucky Ava (Dube, $3) have five outclassed rivals chasing in vain.
For Lucky Ava, a Lucky Chucky miss co-owned by (trainer) Ake Svanstedt, Little E LLC and Van Camp Trotting), she has five wins and three seconds in nine ’18 tries. The exacta paid $19, the triple retuned $48 and the superfecta paid $167.50.
New York Sire Stakes return here Monday night (Aug. 13th), with the $157,000 Pat Quaglietta Trot for 2-year-olf fillies.
