Woodbine: Saskawea runs down speed

Email

Saskawea stalked a three-horse speed battle in the $150,000 Fury at Woodbine, then took over for the victory in the seven-furlong dash for Ontario-foaled 3-year-old fillies.

Saskawea ($25.20), ridden by Justin Stein for trainer Steve Attard, took charge at the eighth pole en route to a 2 3/4-length score in 1:24.59. Quiet Action rallied from far back for second, finishing three-quarters of a length ahead of Palace Pier, the 4-5 favorite.
