SPURIOUS PRECISION THE “REAL DEAL” IN SARATOGA SPECIAL
SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. – Spurious Precision made it 2-for-2 at Saratoga Race Course and stamped himself a leader in the 2-year-old division with a front-running five-length victory in Sunday’s 107th running of the Grade 2, $200,000 Saratoga Special.
An impressive maiden winner at the Spa on July 21, the son of High Cotton came back on short notice and under jockey Alan Garcia simply outran his five rivals in the 6 ½-furlong race. Bounding to the lead out of the gate, Spurious Precision zipped through an opening quarter-mile in 21.35 seconds and a half in 44.02 while under pressure from Southern Honor and Drum Roll, then shook clear in the stretch and cruised under the wire in 1:16.53.
