CENTRE COURT FIRES AN ACE IN G2 LAKE GEORGE


SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. – Centre Court already had proven to be a filly who likes a good tussle, and she got one Wednesday at Saratoga Race Course. Careening through tight quarters just outside the sixteenth pole, the rising Smart Strike filly bulled her way between opponents and scored an impressive victory in the Grade 2, $200,000 Lake George for 3-year-old fillies on the turf.

Ridden by Julien Leparoux for owner G. Watts Humphrey and trainer George “Rusty” Arnold, Centre Court won her third straight race by conquering seven others including Samitar, who took the Group 1 Irish 1,000 Guineas this year, and 2011 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf winner Stephanie’s Kitten.
