Daughter of Ghostzapper Goes Wire-to-Wire at Saratoga


Red Ghost | Sarah Andrew

5th-Saratoga, $72,000, Msw, 8-30, 2yo, f, 5 1/2f (off turf), 1:04.07, ft.
RED GHOST (f, 2, Ghostzapper–Better Than Most, by Elusive Quality) took all the tote attention at 6-5 in this off the turfer, and soon showed why. Breaking on top in typical Wesley Ward trainee fashion, she doled out splits of 21.70 and :45.08 and never looked back as she ran up the score to 8 1/2 lengths in the lane. Fort Drum (Declaration of War), a $5,500 yearling who drew in off the also-eligible list, belied 68-1 odds to crash the exacta. The winner is half to W V Jetsetter (Jet Phone), MSW & MGSP, $188,354; More Than Most (Indygo Mountain), MSW, $272,464; and Worldventurer (Wimbledon), MSW, $270,508. She has a yearling half-sister by Union Rags and a foal half-sister by Uncle Mo. Her second dam is a GSW and MGISP full-sister to Horse of the Year Alysheba. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $39,600.
