Brown Sends Out Pair in Tenski

Trainer Chad Brown will send out a pair of talented runners in the $100,000 Tenski at a mile on turf for 3-year-old fillies who have not won a graded sweepstakes in 2014.

 

Monday's feature race on a nine-race card, the Tenski drew a full field of 10 fillies, headed by the 5-2 morning-line favorite Walk Close, trained by Christophe Clement.

 

Walk Close is undefeated through three career starts. The bay filly by Tapit has shown a propensity for close finishes - she's won both of her starts this year by a nose with a late flourish.

 

Brown will saddle Sweet Acclaim and Hillhouse High, the second and third choices on the morning line, respectively.

 

Sweet Acclaim was stakes placed as a 2-year-old in England before arriving in Brown's barn for her 2014 campaign. The bay filly has shown glimpses of talent, finishing second in the Grade 3 Appalachian to begin her year and a pair of narrow defeats in the Wait a While and Wild Applause stakes at Belmont Park but has yet to break through. In her most recent start, the daughter of Acclamation lagged behind a moderate pace in the Grade 2 Lake George, and closed well to finish fourth, beaten two lengths.

 

Hillhouse High enters the Tenski off a third-place finish in the seven-furlong Duchess at Woodbine. The Exchange Rate filly took a seven-furlong optional claimer on turf two starts ago, and was second, beaten a nose by Walk Close, three starts back in a one-mile allowance race.

 

Trainer Todd Pletcher will be represented by Super Sky in the Tenski. The chestnut filly has been consistent in her young career; she's hit the board in seven of her 10 starts. Most recently, the Pletcher trainee was third in the Desert Vixen on July 19 at Monmouth Park.

 

The third-place finisher from last year's P.G. Johnson, Miss Frost, will make her return to Saratoga in the Tenski. The Curlin filly broke her maiden last summer at Saratoga before finishing third in the P.G. Johnson. She has made three starts as a 3-year-old, and most recently took an optional claimer at Belmont by a nose.

 

Je Suis Enchantee, Vero Amore, Zinzay, Courageous Julie and Image of Anna complete the main body of the field. Final Redemption and Carolina Shag are also eligible, and Our Amazing Rose and Rock Me Mama are entered for the main track only.
