SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. – Like mother, like son.

Blind Ambition, the 3-year-old son of the multiple turf sprint stakes-winning mare Starfish Bay, made a successful turf sprint stakes debut Wednesday at Saratoga, chasing and finally catching Expedited Vision to win the $100,000 Quick Call Stakes by a half-length. Expedited Vision was second by six lengths over The Money Monster, who was followed, in order, by Mongo Nation, Indy Hill and Malraux.

Starfish Bay headed to Goodwood

Starfish Bay, the Todd Pletcher-trained filly who set a Monmouth Park track record for about 5 1/2 furlongs on June 13, will leave New York on Sunday night for her date in the five-furlong, $152,000 King George Stakes at Goodwood on Thursday. The 4-year-old daughter of Elusive Quality worked four furlongs in 48.88, breezing, on the Belmont training track on Thursday morning in preparation for Goodwood, which lies a few miles outside of Chichester near the south coast of England.
