Sweet Annuity solidified her status as the early favorite for the $150,000 Cavada Breeders' Cup Classic on Oct. 13 by scoring a wire-to-wire 3 1/4-length victory in last Saturday's $35,000 Sadie Hawkins Stakes, a seven-furlong race for West Virginia-breds.

* Value-oriented players had only to focus on route races last week. Of the 11 races contested at 1 1/16 and 1 1/8 miles, Girls Girls Girls and Sonny's Chance were the only favorites to win. Seven of the other eight winners were 5-1 or higher, with the average win mutuel $23.80.
