Sweet Acclaim auditions for Saratoga trip in Ellis Park Turf


Brad Cox doesn’t yet know whether Sweet Acclaim will be among the dozen or so horses he will soon ship to Saratoga. But there’s little doubt the Irish-bred mare would be competitive at the Spa, perhaps even in graded company. And that’s why Sweet Acclaim is likely to be an odds-on favorite when the $50,000 Ellis Park Turf is run Saturday as the first of five stakes at the western Kentucky track’s summer meet.
