HAMBURG, N.Y. --- Barn Babe has won $338,167 in her first two seasons, but the start of her 4-year-old mare's campaign has begun slowly.
That changed on Sunday afternoon (June 8) as Barn Babe circled the field and cruised to a convincing 1-1/4 length decision over Haste in the conditioned $4,500 trot in 2:04.4 over the sloppy track at Buffalo Raceway. It was Barn Babe's first win of the season in seven starts.
Sitting sixth three-wide at the three-quarter marker, Barn Babe ($5.00) made a slight bobble but drivermanaged to get her back on stride and roared through the stretch to trot past Haste ( ) and Accrual Girl ( ).
Owned by Steven and Nancy Pratt, Barn Babe now has 13 victories in 32 career starts and now has earned $340,417 lifetime.
and each posted driving triples on the matinee card.
Racing will return on Wednesday evening with an 11-race card set to begin at 5 p.m.
