Edgeway Best In Rancho Bernardo

DEL MAR, CA – Hronis Racing’s Edgeway, the even-money favorite in a short field of four fillies and mares, went about her business in fine fashion Friday afternoon and came away a 1-length winner in the 50th edition of the $100,000 Rancho Bernardo Handicap (G3) at Del Mar.

The 4-year-old daughter of Competitive Edge covered 6 1/2 furlongs in 1:16.80 under Joe Bravo and won her race in easier fashion than the margin would indicate.

“She was feeling real positive from the break right on through. I was in the catbird seat pretty much all the way. At the three-eighths (pole) I just cut her loose and she got real brave then. She’s a nice filly and good horses make my job easier. It’ll be interesting to see what John (trainer Sadler) does with her next.”

Finishing second in the Rancho Bernardo was Gem Inc and Kagele’s Proud Emma, while pulling in third was Don Alberto Stable’s Stellar Sound. The 2/1 second choice Scotish Star completed the order of finish. Candura scratched.

Competitive Edge also gave trainer John Sadler his sixth victory in this distaff sprint going back to a fine filly named Track Gal the conditioner saddled to win the race in 1995, ’96, and ’97.

“This has been such a good race for me and it is fun to win it again; it has been a few years in between wins,” Sadler said. “This is a good filly, she has a great record. The only bad race was her last one and Gamine (who left Edgeway 11 1/4 lengths behind in the Great Lady M [G2] at Los Alamitos) is the best in the country. She came back from it today, so I’m very happy.”
