Oak Tree: Jones sweeps exacta


Trainer Marty Jones swept the exacta in Thursday's seventh race when Blue Jay Attack ($4) rallied from off the pace to catch stablemate Don Perico.

For the first half-mile, Don Perico and Shu Biz Danny fought through quick fractions of 21.94 and 44.39 seconds before the pace took its toll on Shu Biz Danny. Don Perico was still in front late but could not hold off Blue Jay Attack, who won by a length in 1:09.15.

Blue Jay Attack has won 2 of 5 starts. He was a troubled seventh as the favorite in an first condition allowance race over six furlongs on turf on Oct. 2, but had a troubled trip. Thursday's race was restricted to statebreds.
