Fly to Me up at the wire


Fly to Me ($13.80) ran down 3-5 favorite Sweet Lorena in the final strides to win the $50,000 Arctic Queen Handicap for New York-bred fillies and mares over six furlongs at Finger Lakes.

Sweet Lorena opened up a four-length lead into the stretch, but Fly to Me powered home, with Street Sass close behind, to catch the leader in the shadow of the wire. Fly to Me finished a head in front of Sweet Lorena, who was another head in front Street Sass.

Fly to Me, ridden by John Davila Jr. and trained by Michael Lecesse, covered the distance in 1:11.30.
