Ugly Betty wins F&M Open Pace at Buffalo Raceway

Ugly Betty won the featured Fillies and Mares Open Pace at Buffalo Raceway.

After winning impressively in an $8,000 conditioned pace last week at Buffalo Raceway, Ugly Betty (Jack Flanigen) stepped up and tried her luck in the Open competition for the ladies this time.

No luck was needed.

Scoring from the two post, she won the battle for the lead and put up fractions of :29.2, :59 and 1:28.4. Ugly Betty left little doubt at the top of the lane. Enjoying a three length lead at that point, she easily held off all challengers, posting a 3-3/4 length victory over Heavenly Place (David McNeight III). Honeybee Hershey (Kevin Cummings) finished in third.

The win was the third in five appearances in 2014 for Ugly Betty. She is owned by Margaret Payne and Jennifer Falcone and is trained by Dennis Dylo. The win pushed the 6-year-old mare's yearly earnings to $13,248 and $125,210 lifetime.

A 12-race card is scheduled for 5 p.m. Thursday night at Buffalo Raceway.
