Olive back on top

Normal service was resumed at Belmont Park on Saturday when champion female sprinter Goodnight Olive got back on the winning trail in the Bed o’ Roses, rallying to beat Wicked Halo and Caramel Swirl in an exciting finish.

The 1-5 favorite had to work hard for it, coming with a sustained challenge through the stretch to run down second-choice Wicked Halo and Caramel Swirl inside the last sixteenth and get home by a neck, with three-quarters of a length separating the board horses. The fourth horse Dr B was more than 12 lengths back.

It was the fifth win of the afternoon for jockey Irad Ortiz and the third for trainer Chad Brown, and it buried the memory of Goodnight Olive’s unlucky and frustrating defeat in the G1 Derby City Distaff last time.

“I was really proud of her, she made multiple moves in the race,” said Brown. “Irad made the right decision to go wide and she really showed her stuff.”

Goodnight Olive, eight-for-ten lifetime with three G1s, could stretch out for her next start, with the G3 Molly Pitcher at Monmouth Park over a mile-sixteenth (July 22) under consideration.
