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 was a huge favorite Sunday and didn’t disappoint, taking command immediately in the six-furlong sprint for fillies and mares and winning by 1 1/4 lengths over Soul Patch. Sister Kate paid $2.40 to win.

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).

Racing resumes at Golden Gate Fields Thursday. Post time is 12:45 p.m.
