Cincinnati Miss (Kadabra) sprung the upset in the Sunday feature at Saratoga Casino Hotel. With no Open Trot this week, the $13,000 Winners Over was the feature on the thirteen race matinee card and it was a longshot bettor’s delight. Cincinnati Miss, the race’s lone mare, tipped off her cover and charged hard late to win a tight photo with fellow longshot Aventure (Tony Ciuffetelli) as well the favored Twisted Pretzel (Mark Beckwith) in a mile clocked in 1:55.4. It was the eighth victory of the season for the Brett Derue-trained Cincinnati Miss who continued a big weekend for the meet’s leading driver Frank Coppola Jr. who is now just a few weeks away from securing his eleventh Saratoga driving title. Cincinnati Miss paid $26.00 to win in the upset and led an exacta with 31-1 shot Aventure that returned $250.50. The triple came back $659.
Live racing resumes on Thursday with a first post time of 4:00pm.
