Too Discreet wins Schenectady at Saratoga

SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (AP) Too Discreet wore down front-running Bruised Orange and Don't Be So Salty in the stretch for a neck victory Friday in the $100,000 Schenectady for 2-year-old grass sprinters at Saratoga Race Course.

A full brother to Grade 1-winning millionaire Discreet Marq, also trained by Christophe Clement, Too Discreet ran 5 1/2 furlongs in 1:04.13 in his stakes debut over a grass course softened by overnight rain. Favored at even money in a field reduced to four by scratches, he paid $4.30 and $2.70.

It was the second win of the meet for Too Discreet, following his gate-to-wire debut victory over the same turf course Aug. 2. He earned $60,000 to push his career bankroll to $103,800.

Bruised Orange and Don't Be So Salty battled from the gate into deep stretch and were separated by a nose on the wire, with Bruised Orange returning $3.20 for second. There was no show wagering.

Montauk Cove completed the order of finish.
