Spring to the Sky takes off-the-turf Troy


SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. -  Trainer Bruce Brown said the decision to leave Spring to the Sky in Wednesday’s $100,000 Troy Stakes, once the race was switched from the turf to a sloppy main track, was a last-minute one. It also proved to be the right one, after Spring to the Sky withstood both a near race-long challenge from Dads Caps and a stewards’ inquiry to register a hard-fought three-quarter- length victory on a bleak and soggy afternoon at Saratoga.
