Saratoga: Sheppard exacta


  There have been three steeplechase races at the meet, and William L. Pape homebreds trained by Jonathan Sheppard have won them all.

  Following in the footsteps of Sermon of Love ($25.00 in the J. Kiser) and Divine Fortune ($7.40 in the A. P. Smithwick), Lead Us Not (1st, $14.40) showed the way over the early jumps, relinquished the lead to Riddle down the backstretch the final time, and re-rallied outside at the last fence to outfinish stablemate Parker's Project.

  The all-Sheppard exacta paid $91.00.
