Cavorting scores first Grade 1 victory in Test


SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. – Trainer Kiaran McLaughlin said he was concerned the pace was a little too slow, and he wasn’t sure how Cavorting would react to taking some dirt in her face during the running of Saturday’s $500,000 Test Stakes at Saratoga. But all of McLaughlin’s fears were put to rest after Cavorting unleashed a powerful run down the center of the track to prove a decisive 2 1/2-length winner over the longshot Bar of Gold in the prestigious Grade 1 Test for 3-year-old fillies.
