Cash On Delivery delivers a stretch drive and victory

Cash On Delivery closed with a rush.
Driven by his trainer, the 5-year-old Cash Hall gelding had to reel in the longshot pacesetter, Blueridge Tornado, in deep stretch to prevail in the final strides. Major Herbie was third. It was the third win in 2013 for Cash On Delivery, who boosted his season’s earnings to nearly $60,000.

Drivers Ross Wolfenden and Montrell Teague each had a driving double on Wednesday.

Northfield Park
Formula T was an upset winner in Northfield Park’s second race on Wednesday. Robert Dinning piloted the gelding for owner David Miller of Millersburg, Ohio and trainer Sandy Landfair. Formula T (Raging Glory--Charlie’s Lucky, by Scoot Outa Reach) started from post four and was sixth through an opening quarter of :27.2. Dinning pulled the pacer into the cover flow approaching the half and stayed behind live cover through middle fractions of :57 and 1:27. Formula T took the lead in the stretch and posted a one length victory, in 1:57.2. Wednesday’s triumph increased Formula T’s lifetime wins tally to five and his career earnings to $24,367. The favorite finished fourth as (4) Formula T (55-1) was followed across the wire by (7) Artistic Dreamer (25-1) and (2) Juliard (6-1). Formula T returned $113.40 to win; the 4-7 exacta paid $627.80 and the 4-7-2 trifecta returned $3,200.40.

Saratoga Casino and Raceway
Camdee (Western Ideal) was the star of the night on Wednesday at Saratoga Casino and Raceway. The sophomore filly was taking part in just her seventh lifetime race and started from post eight. Having to move three wide heading to the half-mile pole, Camdee (Jay Randall) unleashed a backstretch blitz in the third quarter and sprinted away from her rivals after pouncing on the favored Know It All (John Stark, Jr). Camdee drew away to win in 1:55.4, one of the fastest times of the night for any horse on the humid evening at the Spa. It also served as a career best for the filly who is trained by Bert Belanger and now has three wins in seven lifetime tries. Criterion Hanover (Harry Landy) closed to be second and Nomo Doctor O (Frank Coppola, Jr.) was third in the $6,000 pace.
