There were longshots galore in the New York Sire Stakes on Wednesday night at Saratoga Casino and Raceway. Two year old filly trotters were in town and comprised five divisions of the $32,700 Sire Stakes for freshman highsteppers.
There was only one favorite who prevailed among stakes fillies on Wednesday as Pig Hunt (Conway Hall) scored a convincing win for driver George Brennan in 2:01.1 at odds of 1-5.
The fastest winner of the night for the freshman fillies was Miss B’ville J (Rc Royalty) who wired the field for Jim Morrill Jr in 1:59.2. It was the second victory on the season and easily a new lifetime mark for the Tracy Brainard-trained filly.
Miss B’ville J went off at odds of 5-1.
Three longshots won the remaining three stakes races as Concentration (Conway Hall) upset for driver Chris Lems at 16-1, Counsellor As (Conway Hall) prevailed for reinsman Marcus Johansson at 17-1 and Dancewithme Chuck (Lucky Chucky) scored at odds of 19-1 with Charlie Norris in the sulky.
The New York Sire Stakes return to Saratoga on Saturday August 16th, the same night that the Joe Gerrity Jr. Memorial Free-For-All Pace will take place.
Live racing continues on Thursday night at Saratoga with a first post time set for 7:05pm.
