Dune In Red & Austin Siegelman
Dune In Red (Duneside Perch) scored a victory in the feature at Saratoga Casino and Raceway for the second straight Sunday afternoon. Leaving to overcome her outside post, Dune In Red worked hard to get to the lead in a fast opening quarter paced in 27.4. Once she got there, the even money favorite never looked back. The Allan Johnson-trained four year old prevailed in 1:54.4 in the $17,000 Fillies and Mares Open with Austin Siegelman in the sulky. Cloris Hanover (Billy Dobson) closed from last to finish second in the Sunday feature while Get Your Armor (Bruce Aldrich Jr) earned the show spot.
Live racing resumes on Wednesday night with a 6:45pm first post. Racing takes place on Wednesday night this week instead of Thursday due to the Thanksgiving holiday.
