East Rutherford, NJ --- Sayitall BB took the lead in the early moments and controlled the race from there, winning Friday’s $593,750 Breeders Crown for 3-year-old female pacers by three-quarters of a length over Major Dancer in 1:50.3 at the Meadowlands.
Supplemented to the Breeders Crown for $62,500, Sayitall BB started from post nine and led the field through fractions of :27.2, :55.4 and 1:24.1 on her way to victory. She paid $21 to win. Beach Gal finished third, followed by favorite Color’s A Virgin.
The victory was the second Breeders Crown triumph of the night for the driver-trainer combo of Yannick Gingras and Ron Burke. Gingras upped his total of trophies to nine, and Burke to eight.

Sayitall BB qualified for the Breeders Crown final by finishing fifth in her elimination last week, edging out Table Talk for the last spot to advance from the race.
“She’s Go On BB’s sister, we made a lot of money with her,” Burke said, referring to $1.4-million-earner Go On BB. “We just slipped into this race; I really thought we were sixth. I had already started sending out the apology texts to the owners for putting up all that money.”
Sayitall BB, a daughter of Tell All-Challo B B, has won nine of 15 races this year and earned $502,410 for owners Burke Racing Stable and Weaver Bruscemi LLC.
Gallie Bythe Beach, who last week won her Breeders Crown elimination, was scratched sick. It is the second consecutive year that Gallie Bythe Beach won an elim, but was unable to compete in the final.
Uffizi Hanover, who won last season’s Breeders Crown for 2-year-old female pacers, went off stride before the start and was not a factor.
