Tie in $150,000 Schuylerville Stakes at Saratoga
SARATOGA SPRINGS (AP) -- Brazen Persuasion and Bahnah battled to the wire and ended the $150,000 Schuylerville Stakes in a dead heat at Saratoga Race Course.
Brazen Persuasion, ridden by Rosie Napravnik, held to a narrow advantage in the final sixteenth mile but Bahnah and jockey Corey Lanerie drew even in the final stride. They ran 6 furlongs in 1:12.12 in what was the highlight of opening day at Saratoga on Friday.
The Steve Asmussen-trained Brazen Persuasion paid $2.80, $3.30 and $2.30. Bahnah, trained by Bret Calhoun, returned $2.40, $2.70 and $2.20. Elena Strikes, coupled in the wagering with Yes Liz, finished third and paid $2.10 for show.
Each filly earned $60,000, Brazen Persuasion for Marilyn and Darren Pollitt, Bahnah for Wayne Sanders and Larry Hirsch.
