SISTER KATE SCORES AGAIN AT GOLDEN GATE FIELDS; ALVARADO HAS EASTER SUNDAY RIDING TRIPLE
ALBANY -- Sister Kate improved her record to 3-for-5 with a front-running victory in the $36,920 allowance feature at Golden Gate Fields Sunday.
Sister Kate, a 4-year-old filly by Benchmark, won her debut by seven lengths on Jan. 12 and also posted a seven-length score on March 18. Sandwiched between the two blow-out victories were fourth- and third-place finishes.
Sister Kate, ridden by Russell Baze and trained by Jerry Hollendorfer, recorded a quick time of 1:09.85 on the synthetic Tapeta racing surface. Owned by Mary H. Caldwell, Sister Kate earned $23,400 for the victory and has made $76,050 in her five races.
Jockey Frank Alvarado celebrated Easter Sunday by winning three races. Alvarado took the fourth race with Mavicsa ($14.60), the fifth with Granite Girl ($4.20), and the seventh with Munnings Sister ($14.20).
