Vernon: Non Stick remains undefeated after New York Sire Stakes victory

Non Stick has still never been defeated after a 1:55 score on Saturday at Vernon Downs

Non Stick improved her career record to eight-for-eight following a 1:55 win in one of three New York Sire Stakes divisions for 3-year-old trotting fillies on Saturday night at Vernon Downs.  Stick Of Butter and Open Access were the other victors.

Driven by Mark MacDonald, Non Stick was in the lead through fractions of 28, 57 2/5, and 1:26 on her way to tallying in her $40,600 split.  Earn Your Wings (Charlie Norris) was up for second, beaten two lengths, and Dizzy Broad (Jim Morrill Jr.) collected third.

Trainer Ake Svanstedt also co-owns Non Stick, a Lucky Chucky filly, with partner Little E LLC. of New York.  She has earned $226,532 to go with her eight victories.  Sent off at 2-5, she returned $2.70.

Stick Of Butter (Francisco Del Cid) was left first-over by Straight A Student (MacDonald) from the 57 second half-mile mark onward, but Stick Of Butter got the better of her in the lane, winning the first $39,900 section by a length and a quarter in 1:54 3/5.  Young Bride (Scott Young) finished third.

Del Cid also trains Stick Of Butter, another daughter of Lucky Chucky, for owner Mario Mazza of Pennsylvania.  Stick Of Butter has a pair of wins from eight trips behind the gate, and she has banked $30,050.  A 5-2 shot, Stick Of Butter paid $7.20.

The fastest of the New York Sire Stakes contests was the last one, as 15-1 shot Open Access (Norris) rallied off a third-over trip to win by a nose in 1:54 1/5 in a three-filly photo finish.  Fad Finance (Trond Smedshammer) had the pocket trip in the $40,600 race but wound up getting nosed out by the winner on the line, and Swinging Royalty (Chris Lems), the leader through stations of 27, 56 1/5, and 1:25 3/5, was a close third.

Open Access, a filly by Credit Winner, is trained by Robert Baggitt for owner/breeder Fair Winds Farm Inc. of New Jersey.  She has three wins from eight starts, and she has earned $40,601.  She returned $33.80.
