Another Stakes Win for Saratoga Snacks
Making his seasonal return for 2013, Saratoga Snacks (4h Tale of the Cat x Near and Dear, by Red Ransom) produced his usual brilliance to win the $100,000 Shy Groom Stakes at Belmont. Prepared by Gary Sciacca, Saratoga Snacks stalked the lead and then rallied strongly to the line to win the seven furlong sprint by a length and a quarter. Saratoga Snacks has won six races and placed twice from eight starts earning $304,600 in prizemoney. A half-brother by top class sire Tale of the Cat to stakes-placed Rajman, Saratoga Snacks is raced by August Dawn Farm and is from Near and Dear, whose dam is a half-sister to Grade I winner Without Feathers.
