Shallow (Up The Credit) has spent much of her last few months racing against the top lady pacers both at Plainridge Park and at Saratoga Casino Hotel. The Andy Gardner trainee finished second in the local Open for fillies and mares two weeks ago (Sept 11) but dropped in company off a sixth-place effort in last week’s ladies feature. Following a scratch on Monday, Shallow inherited the rail for her try in an $11,500 conditional race which served as the feature on the matinee card. Billy Dobson piloted the five year old mare who earned over $100,000 in her breakout 2022 campaign. Dobson moved Shallow out to the early lead where she would remain untested in a first half that went in 57.4. Her race’s odds-on betting favorite, Shallow kicked away from her rivals turning for home en route to victory in 1:54.3. Following up a twelve-win ’22 campaign, the five year old distaffer’s Monday score was just her third this season. Pocket-sitter HS Shauna (Luke Hanners) is in the midst of a terrific three-month stretch and continued her hot streak by finishing second to the favorite in Monday’s feature while Fond Memories A (Brett Beckwith) earned the show spot. Shallow is owned by Room4040 LLC Stables of Yorktown, NY.
Live racing resumes on Saturday evening at Saratoga with first post time set for 5pm.
