Doug Koch, owner of Berkshire Stud in upstate Pine Plains, N.Y. knows exactly how bad things can go at times in racing. Last Saturday in the Distaff Breeders' Cup (gr. II) at Aqueduct, his Saskya was to make her last start before retiring to broodmare duties.
Prohibitive favorite Carson Hollow took the measure of her main rival Raging Fever in mid-stretch and pulled away to a 1 1/4-length victory in Saturday's $150,000 Distaff Breeders' Cup Handicap at Aqueduct Park.
Bruce Garafolo's A.P. Andie, unraced since November, shot through a hole near the rail and overtook favored Shawklit Mint to win Saturday's six-furlong Correction Handicap for fillies and mares at Aqueduct.
