FATHER PICKENS GETS IT RIGHT

Chestnut colt, Father Pickens, after just four career starts, was able to find the winning post in front when he won by two-and-a-half lengths in a three-year-old maiden condition race at Caymanas Park on Saturday.

Ridden by apprentice Oneil Beckford, Father Pickens, broke on top and never looked back in a gate-to-wire performance. At no point during the race was Father Pickens threatened in his comfortable win over Black Point (Kerry-Gayl Robinson), Lazer Light (Prince Holder) and Sly Stalloon (Omar Walker) going five furlongs (1,000m) on the round. The winning time was a pedestrian 1:02.0.

Father Pickens is bred by DistortedOne Stop, is owned by Winston Tracey and trained by Gary Subratie.

DENNIS LEE NOTCHES FIFTH WINNER FOR THE SEASON

Veteran conditioner Dennis Lee notched his fifth winner for the season when his bay mare Royal Girl (Oneil Scott) won the sixth race on Saturday.

Royal Girl tracked True Whisper (Anthony Thomas) for most of the way during the six-and-a-half furlong (1,300m) dash but coming into the lane against the inside rails behind True Whisper and King Nebarue (Omar Walker), Scott produced his mount and Royal Girl went by to score by over two lengths in time of 1:23.3.

King Nebarue was second with Indy Arazi (Dane Dawkins) third and True Whisper fourth.

MARY'S GOLD COMES GOOD

Patience paid off for five-year-old bay mare Mary's Gold as the Storm Craft offspring pick up her second career win in a Restricted Allowance event at Caymanas Park on Saturday.

Mary's Gold has been knocking at the door recently but couldn't find the opening after a number of close finishes. However, on Saturday ridden by Omar Walker, the Donovan Russell trainee found the opening she needed and romped to victory by two lengths going six-and-a-half furlongs (1,300m).

Mary's Gold picked up the lead turning for home and cruised home ahead Silver Surf (Dane Dawkins) and Seriousmanipulator (Harriston Lewis) in 1:24.2.

US TRAINER CHAD BROWN RECORD MARK AT SARATOGA

SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (AP) — Chad Brown has broken his own record for victories by a trainer in a single meet at Saratoga, earning his 41st.

Spirit Animal won the sixth race Saturday at the upstate New York track to push Brown to the mark.

Brown won 40 races to earn the trainers' title at the 2016 summer meet. Todd Pletcher tied him last year with 40 wins.

Brown has already clinched his second career title. He had more than double the wins of Pletcher, his next closest competitor, entering Saturday's card. The meet ended yesterday.

Brown says that in horse racing trainers are judged by how much they win. He says his success at Saratoga is especially meaningful because he is from nearby Mechanicville, and has a lot of friends and family supporting him.

Brown has been the leading trainer on the New York Racing Association circuit for the last three years.
