Band Of Angels Equals Track Record

The Yannick Gingras-Ron Burke combination teamed up to sweep the three big time New York Sire Stakes races at Saratoga Casino and Raceway on Wednesday night.

Band Of Angels (sired by Rock N Roll Heaven) matched the track record for two-year-old pacing fillies behind a wire-to-wire 1:54.4 win in the $54,500 NY Sire Stake. The victory matched the lifetime mark for the filly, who moved her career record to three-for-three with the front-running score.

Burke-trained fillies Sassa Hanover (by Rock N Roll Heaven) and Bettor N Better (by Bettors Delight) each recorded 1:55 wins on the front end with Gingras in the sulky. Burke’s trio of freshman fillies is now nine-for-nine this season as they have dominated the first month of Sire Stakes action for two-year-olds.
