The streak of longshots continued in Race 7, a six-furlong optional-claiming sprint for state-bred 3-year-olds and up, with Saratoga Pal [No. 4, $40.40]rallying wide down the lane to win at odds of 19-1 as the longest shot in the seven-horse field. Eric Cancel guided the winner for Chris Englehart.
Crea’s Bklyn Law [No. 8, $8.10] rallied down the center of the track to capture Race 8 with Kendrick Carmouche up for Michael Miceli in the 6 1/2-furlong sprint for 3-year-olds and up on the main track.
