Saratoga: Exley pounded last flash, dueled into defeat


  Exley (2nd), a Calder shipper who was 7-2 second choice on the morning line, opened at 3-2 and was sitting at 8-5 for the last several minutes of wagering before being pounded to even money in one flash of the toteboard as the field loaded in the gate.

  In the running, Exley hooked up in an enervating duel with morning-line favorite D' Sauvage through a quarter in 21.88 and a half in 45.58, and succumbed late as Private Rules ($19.60) and Cooks Forest swept by.
