Saratoga: Telling repeats in Sword Dancer

Email

  Telling (10th, $22.60) proved last year's Sword Dancer win at 33-1 was no fluke, coming through on the inside in the stretch to outfinish Bearpath and win the Grade 1 race for the second straight year.

  Al Khali was third; Interpatation finished fourth; and favored Expansion was fifth in the field of nine.

  Telling, trained by Steve Hobby, won by 1 1/2 lengths. He ran 1 1/2 miles in 2:25.29 on a firm inner turf course under Garrett Gomez, a time nearly identical to his 2:25.43 clocking a year ago.
