In my lone visit to Saratoga this year, I sure picked a good day to go. I was able to witness a top flight filly, did down deep and make some racing history.
Havre de Grace , by 2005 Horse of the Year, St. Liam ( also the 2005 Woodward victor) out of the Carson City mare, Easter Bunette has put herself at the top of the division with the very gutsy win in the Grade 1 Woodward, and is only the second filly to have ever won this race. It was her first test against older males.
Sportsman/owner Rick Porter said “We gave her a chance to show how good she was”
Rider Ramon Dominguez “She called on herself beautifully, she has a very relaxed stride”
Masterful trainer Larry Jones said “We are 75% leaning towards the Beldame” for her next start.
Alex Solis, on runner up Flat Out, “she proved today that she is a great horse”
One more start in either the Beldame or the Spinster should set her up nicely for the first weekend in November.
