SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (AP) Charles Fipke's Unbridled Forever caught Stonetastic to win the $100,000 Shine Again Stakes by a neck Wednesday at Saratoga Race Course.
Making her seasonal debut for trainer Dallas Stewart, Unbridled Forever settled along the inside in midpack under Hall of Fame jockey John Velazquez as Stonetastic set a pace. Unbridled Forever reeled in Stonetastic and finished the seven furlongs in 1:22.90 over a fast main track.
Unbridled Forever paid $9.30, $4.20 and $3.60. Stonetastic returned $4 and $3.60 for second, with 34-1 long shot Taketheodds paying $13 for show.
Winner of the 2014 Silverbulletday Stakes, Unbridled Forever has placed in five graded stakes including the Grade 1 Kentucky Oaks, Grade 1 Coaching Club American Oaks and Grade 1 Acorn, all last year.
