Makingcents Wires Fleet Indian

SARATOGA SPRINGS, NY – Jockey Luis Saez rode four winners Friday, including three in stakes events, as New York-breds took center stage at Saratoga Race Course for New York Showcase Day, as part of a 12-race card containing six stakes for state-breds worth a combined $900,000.

Saez won the last three races on the card beginning in Race 10, the 9-furlong Fleet Indian for sophomore fillies, by guiding Fortune Farm’s Makingcents gate to wire.

Breaking from the rail, the daughter of Goldencents got into position going into the first turn and recorded opening fractions of 24.25 seconds for the first 1/4-mile and the 1/2-mile in 48.73.

Around the far turn, Makingcents got her cue from Saez as she extended her advantage. Approaching the 1/8 pole, Sharp Starr, who hopped at the start, unleashed a late bid to the outside with Ice Princess doing the same to the inside.

Makingcents had enough to hang on by a neck to Ice Princess in a final time of 1:50.31.

Returning $8.80, Makingcents secured a third victory in 6 lifetime starts while bringing up her lifetime earnings to $169,820. She won her third career outing by 9 1/2 lengths over the Aqueduct main track before defeating New York-bred winners going a one turn mile at Belmont Park.

Bred in New York by Windhorse Thoroughbreds, Makingcents is out of the Cape Town mare Mischief Maker.
