Saratoga: Proviso wins Diana


  Proviso (9th, $6.40) tracked Dynaslew and Maram from close range inside, was eased to the three-path into the far turn by Mike Smith, and prevailed by a head over Shared Account in a blanket finish to win the Diana.

  The Diana was the third consecutive Grade 1 win for Proviso, and became Bill Mott's fourth Diana winner since 2005.

  Forever Together was narrowly denied a Diana three-peat, finishing a nose behind Shared Account in third, a head in front of Dynaslew.
