True Passion won his sixth straight race in Saturday's Grade 3, $200,000 Philadelphia Breeders' Cup at Philadelphia Park.

True Passion, under Anthony Black, was ridden out to a 2 1/4-length victory over Late Carson in the six-furlong race. Really Irish finished a neck farther back in third in the field of seven 3-year-olds and up. Yonaguska, the 9-5 favorite, finished last.

True Passion dueled Holiday Music and Yonaguska into defeat after a half-mile in 45.53 seconds. Late Carson rallied into second place in midstretch but made no headway late.

True Passion covered six furlongs over a fast track in 1:10.72 and paid $6. Owned by Eliott Krems and trained by Donald Reeder, True Passion had won the Wilmington Handicap at Delaware Park in his last start. His win streak began April 7 with a $20,000 conditioned claimer at Philadelphia Park.

* Mandy's Gold ran down favored Madame Roar turning for home and won the $100,600 Sweet and Sassy Stakes by 8 1/4 lengths Saturday at Delaware Park. Madame Roar, sent off at 7-5, took the lead early in the six-furlong race for fillies and mares, but was hounded by longshot Look of the Lynx through fractions of 22.49 seconds and 45.81. Mandy's Gold and jockey Mike McCarthy sat just behind the pacesetters and swooped past Madame Roar with ease. Madame Roar held second. Mandy's Gold, a 4-year-old Gilded Time filly, ran the distance over a fast track in 1:11.21 and returned $6. She is owned by Steeplechase Farm and trained by Michael Gorham.
