Saratoga: Rapport wire to wire in Victory Ride

Email

  Rapport (9th, $6.90) cut fractions of 22.05 and 44.54 while pressed by Beyondallboundarys, and maintained her lead through the stretch to win the Grade 3 Victory Ride by 3 1/2 lengths over 22-1 longshot My Jen. It was another 1 3/4 lengths back to Beyondallboundarys.

  Rapport, the second choice, had been 0-0-0 from four previous starts on dirt. Trained by Bob Baffert and ridden by Martin Garcia, the 3-year-old Songandaprayer filly ran six furlongs in 1:09.66 over a fast main track.

  Katy Now, the slight favorite at 2-1, raced wide and finished a non-threatening fourth, beaten nine lengths.
