Belle Hill notches first stakes win in Irish Day Handicap


Belle Hill rolled to a four-length victory Sunday in the $50,000 Irish Day Handicap at Emerald Downs, a surprisingly easy triumph in her first start beyond 6 1/2 furlongs. The 3-1 third choice in a field of nine 3-year-old fillies, Belle Hill ran one mile in 1:36.67 under Leslie Mawing and paid $8.40.
