NEW YORK WATCH: SIGN
SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. –Al Stall, Jr. continued his strong 2012 Saratoga Race Course meeting by sending out Sign to a 11 ¾-length debut victory on Sunday, the trainer’s sixth win from 20 starts since racing commenced here on July 20.
Sign drew the rail post and left the gate in seventh place before flashing speed along the inside to race in third, 1 ½ lengths behind the leader, through an opening quarter-mile in 22.56 seconds. After dropping back to fourth while awaiting running room on the turn, the daughter of Pulpit circled the field four wide and needed only minimal urging from Rosie Napravnik to run up the score in deep stretch.
