Salama a go for Breeders' Cup Distaff


LEXINGTON, Ky. – Salama didn’t win her North American debut Saturday, but trainer Charlie LoPresti was pleased nonetheless with how the 3-year-old filly performed when closing stoutly to be second behind Lavender Chrissie in a 1 1/8-mile optional claimer at Keeneland. Salama earned a 79 Beyer Speed Figure and will run next as a longshot in the Breeders’ Cup Distaff.
