Dead-Heat in Saratoga Gr3

Monday, 22nd July 2013

At Saratoga Race Course in the US, 2YO fillies Brazen Persuasion (Indian Charlie-Beholden, by Cat Thief) & Bahnah (Elusive Quality-Flying Glitter, by Glitterman) fought out a tremendous battle down the stretch that resulted in a dead-heat for their respective trainers Steve Asmussen & Brett Calhoun in the US$150,000 Gr3 Schuylerville Stakes (6 furlongs) for 2YOs, over fellow filly Elena Strikes (Smart Strike-Ticket to Houston, by Houston). Brazen Persuasion took her record to 2 wins from 3 starts & Bahnah took her record to 2 wins from 2 starts. "It was a heck of a duel," commented Bahnah's trainer Calhoun. "Steve's horse took a lot of pressure up there. Hat's off to that horse."
