Springforth continued her recent dominance on Wednesday night at Saratoga Casino and Raceway as the sophomore filly lengthened her win streak to three.

Wally Hennessey catch drove Springforth for leading trainer Melissa Beckwith and moved the three year old right out to the early lead. She was heavily backed by the public to the tune of 1-9 after she aired in her two previous starts in 1:55.3 and 1:55.1.

This week 1:55.4 was plenty for the daughter of Artiscape who may be eyeing competition in the upcoming New York Sire Stakes. Another up-and-coming filly Get Your Armor (Stephane Bouchard) closed for second and briefly made things interesting in the stretch.

Back Beyond (Frank Coppola Jr) earned the show spot in the $6,000 pacing race.

Live racing resumes on Friday night at Saratoga with a first post time of 6:45pm.
