Saratoga: Zenyatta's little brother wins

Email

  Souper Spectacular (5th, $16.00), a 3-year-old half-brother to Zenyatta who sold for $1.15 million as a yearling, switched to turf for his third career start and graduated from the maiden ranks as the second of three winners on the card so far for John Velazquez.

  "He's one of those colts that has a lot of talent but has been a slow learner," said trainer Seth Benzel, who got his 10th winner of the meet.

  After coming back to win the Addison Mallery overnight stakes aboard C. S. Silk (7th, $10.60), Velazquez has opened a 54-51 lead on Javier Castellano.
