Turf Fillies Shine in the $200,000 Lake George Stakes

Category : News - Tue 22/07/2014 - 10:57 EDT

This Wednesday at Saratoga, three-year-old fillies will take center stage in the 19th edition of the $200,000 Lake George Stakes. The Grade 2 stakes race will be contested at a mile and a sixteenth on the inner turf course and has drawn a field of seven.

A Little Bit Sassy has been installed as the 5-2 morning line favorite and will break from the outside in the field of seven. Trained by Michael Matz and ridden by Luis Saez, the dark bay daughter of More Than Ready was purchased for $220,000 as a yearling at Keeneland by Ramona S. Bass. She is attempting to earn her first graded stakes victory after finishing first but getting disqualified to fourth for bumping in the Regret Stakes (G3) at Churchill in June.

Daring Dancer trying to rebound

Second choice at 3-1 is Daring Dancer, a homebred daughter of Empire Maker for Sagamore Farm. Trained by Graham Motion, the bay filly will be making her first start since a fifth-place finish in the Wonder Again Stakes at Belmont in May. Prior to that, she had won all three career outings including the Appalachian (G3) at Keeneland. Regular rider Alan Garcia will be aboard and the pair will break from post two.

Chad Brown has a formidable pair

Sweet Acclaim (IRE) is one of two fillies in the race coming out of the Chad Brown barn. She is 4-1 on the morning line and her stablemate, Little Journey (FR) has been tabbed at 5-1. Sweet Acclaim (IRE) will have Javier Castellano aboard after a third-place finish as the heavy favorite in the Wild Applause Stakes at Belmont. She has been the beaten favorite in her last two races.
