Driver Billy Dobson Wins Five Races at Saratoga Casino Hotel on Tuesday

With no Fillies and Mares Open on the docket on Tuesday afternoon at Saratoga Casino Hotel, an $11,500 event for fillies and mares served as the feature. Pacing mare Truly was the public’s even-money betting favorite in the race after drawing post two and adding lasix for the try.

Billy Dobson piloted the Andy Sardella-trained distaffer who wasted little time moving to the front in the feature. Truly clicked off a fast 27.2 first panel before backing it down some and reaching the half in 57.2.

The favorite’s main threat came in the stretch when pocket-sitting Luck B Mine (Mcgwire Sowers) closed up the inside. The chase proved futile as Truly stopped the timer in 1:55 for her fifth win in nine seasonal starts. Luck B Mine completed an exacta that paid $26.60 while longshot HS Shauna (Jordan Derue) earned the show spot and rounded out a $701 triple.

Truly is owned by Mike and Bill Pozefsky of New York. Billy Dobson had a big day on Tuesday as he piloted five winners on the card, three of which coming for trainer Jaymes McAssey.

Live racing resumes on Saturday evening with a 5pm start and features a $39,925 carryover in the Jackpot High Five.
