Sunday's (Sept. 29) edition of Racing Roundup features a results story from Saratoga.
Bijou Theater wins at Saratoga
Saratoga Springs, NY--- Bijou Theater (Art Major) scored in the $18,000 Fillies and Mares Open at Saratoga on Sunday afternoon. Shawn Gray sat patiently off the early speed with the Heidi Rohr-trained mare before surging in the stretch to record a 1:53.4 win on a beautiful afternoon at the Spa.
The 4-year-old mare is enjoying a career year and has established herself as a force in Open company in recent months. A long shot Briefly (Chris Long) closed to be the runner-up in the feature for the second time in her last three tries, while Southwind Trini (Jim Devaux) earned the show spot. The victory was the seventh of the season for Bijou Theater.
Live racing will resume on Wednesday night at Saratoga at 6:45 p.m.
