NEWBORN SASSY WINS FRIDAY NIGHT 44G DISTAFF DERBY
Neither lass was visible to the naked eye early as Caviart Cherie (Mark MacDonald) led through a 26.3 opening quarter-mile. Magic Forces (George Brennan), perturbed in the pocket, took over before a 55.1 intermission.
Vorst (Brent Holland) slipped out from third, but she wasn't the problem as Magic Forces maintained her lead in and out of a 1:23.1 three-quarters. Wide came 6-5 choice Tequila Monday and even wider-from post position No. 7-was Newborn Sassy.
Tequila Monday quickly opened a length-and-a-half lead into the lane, but her rival was in hot pursuit. Newborn Sassy collared the people's preference in the final yards, edging away by three-quarters of a length in 1:51.3...a tick off her season's-best effort.
It was about seventh lengths back to Magic Forces in third, with Mach it a Par (Jason Bartlett) and Vorst rounding out the payees.
For third choice 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 seventh win in 24 seasonal starts (third in last four tries). The exacta paid $49.40, the triple returned $48.50 and the superfecta paid $1,187.
