Bitterbutsweet handles older fillies


The 3-year-old filly Bitterbutsweet ($6.80), stepping to meet older horses after winning the Scottsdale Handicap on March 31, defeated Bye Bey Ladiess by three-quarters of a length in Saturday's $30,700 Desert Sky Handicap at Turf Paradise.

Owned by M&B Partnership LLC and trained by Dan Morgan, Bitterbutsweet sat well back in the about-one-mile turf race and was still fifth in midstretch but drove home strongly under Daniel Vergara.
