Luck B Mine second-placed-first in Saratoga feature

Saratoga, N.Y.–Luck B Mine (Bettor’s Delight) recorded her first career win in an Open on Tuesday afternoon (Sept. 14) at Saratoga Casino Hotel as the John Podres trainee got elevated into a victory as a result of a disqualification in the $15,000 feature.

Luck B Mine has been on top of her game over the last couple of months and stepped way up in company to compete in the Fillies and Mares Open with leading driver Jimmy Devaux in the sulky. The 4-year-old distaffer came first-over before clearing the lead heading to three quarters. The favorite Bontz N (Wally Hennessey) got clear after being shuffled back and motored up on the outside. The even-money favorite made a brief break and although she righted the ship before coming on to stop the timer in 1:54.3, she wound up being disqualified for causing interference while on a break.

Luck B Mine, who finished second, was placed first to log her fourth victory in her last six starts. Miss Irish Rose A (Larry Stalbaum) hit the line third but was elevated to second after the disqualification of Bontz N while Onspeed N (Alek Chartrand) was placed third.

Luck B Mine paid $7.80 to win and led an exacta and triple that came back $98 and $799, respectively. The razor-sharp mare is owned by Steve Guido of Cicero, N.Y. and Don Stockwell of Hudson Falls, N.Y.

Live racing resumes on Sunday afternoon (Sept. 19) at Saratoga with a first post set for noon.
