Saratoga: Hilda's Passion wins Bennington


  Todd Pletcher had to scratch 3-5 morning-line favorite Rose Catherine when the Bennington overnight stakes was rained off the turf. He won it anyway with Hilda's Passion (8th, $8.80), who left six rivals in her sloppy wake around the turn and ran off to an 8 3/4-length victory under Javier Castellano.

  Hilda's Passion ran 5 1/2 furlongs in 1:03.84 seconds. Malibu Moon Dance swung widest turning fore home and rallied from far back to get second over Decelerator. Aegean finished fourth.
