Sayitall BB captures Breeders Crown 3-Year-Old Filly Pace
Gingras and Burke teamed to also win the richest race of the night, the $593,750 3-Year-Old Filly Pace with Sayitall BB in a 9-1 upset.
She led gate to wire, beating Major Dancer by three quarters of a length in 1:50 3/5. It was her ninth victory in 15 starts this year. She paid $21 to win.
“This afternoon, I was studying the program at home and as I looked over the race, I thought it was a race I could steal," said Gingras. "So, I talked to Ronnie (Burke) and I told him, ‘Tonight, I’m going to leave with this filly.’ As it turned out, I was right. There was no mixing the post positions around. The race worked out perfect for me. It’s been a good year and it was great tonight to win two Breeders Crown races. We’ve got a lot of power going forward and I’m looking forward to tomorrow night.”
Sayitall BB was supplemented to the race for $62,500 and earned back $296,875 for Burke Racing & Weaver Bruscemi. Gingras now has nine Crown wins; Burke has eight.
