Fashion Alert looks tough to beat in opening-day Schuylerville


SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. – Trainer Todd Pletcher thought enough of the precocious Fashion Alert to launch her career against stakes company last month at Belmont Park, and he was rewarded for his confidence with an easy 4 3/4-length victory in the Astoria Stakes. On Friday, Fashion Alert figures to remain unbeaten as the heavy favorite against just four other juvenile fillies in the $150,000 Schuylerville, which highlights the opening-day program of the 2014 Saratoga season.
