On Saturday, the Saratoga race results 2019 edition arrived with one of the winners setting a new course record. Among the big winners of the day were Green Light Go and Got Stormy. The latter of these horses broke a record at the racecourse en route to its Breeders’ Cup entry. Here’s a look at the latest results for Saturday’s races.
Got Stormy wins Fourstardave, sets new record
Race 9 at the Saratoga results was the Fourstardave H featuring Grade 1 Phillies. This one took place over one mile on the inner turf with $500,000 Stakes. In the end, it was No. 6 Got Stormy with a triumphant run to get the win with a time of 1:32.00. Ricardo Santana Jr. rode Got Stormy to victory. In second place was Raging Bull ridden by Jose L. Ortiz followed by Uni with Joel Rosario.
Trainer Mark Casse said of Got Stormy’s performance, “It’s all about [winning owner] Gary Barber. I told him why we shouldn’t run her, and he said, ‘That’s good, but are you happy with how she is training?’ I said, ‘Honestly, I’ve never seen her train so good, and he said, ‘We’re running.'”
According to The Saratogian, Got Stormy was one of two females competing in the Fourstardave Handicap race along with third-place horse Uni. Not only did Stormy become the first female to win the race, but it also broke the inner turf time record, which was 1:33.13 set just eight days ago by Macagone. That has plenty of people excited as this horse is also heading to the Breeders’ Cup in early November of this year.
The race payouts included $12 for Got Stormy’s win, $6 for a Place, and $3.80 for Show. For the Superfecta (6-4-3-1), betters won $49.20 for each $0.10 bet. A Trifecta (6-4-3) for $0.50 netted $31 for a win.
