Finger Lakes: Our Tune speed threat


Our Tune, a wire-to-wire winner in her last two starts, drew a favorable inside post in the $50,000 Jack Betta Be Rite Stakes at Finger Lakes. The race for New York-bred fillies and mares will be contested at 1 1/16 miles.

A 4-year-old trained by Chris Englehart, Our Tune was given an extended vacation after holding on by a nose in the 1 1/8-mile Numbered Account at Aqueduct in March. She returned with an easy win against allowance runners two weeks ago and will break from post 2 on Saturday.

Storm on the Lake, stretching out off a series of sprint races, is likely to contest the early lead. The last time she went sprint to route, Storm on the Lake finished third in last year's New York Oaks.

If a speed duel develops, Sicilian Princess will be looking to close late. She comes off a good second in an open claiming race at Saratoga.
