3YO DR. DEVERA’S WAY Pulls Clear in Saratoga Maiden Win
Having placed in a Belmont maiden test two starts back, only beaten a little over a length, DR. DEVERA’S WAY took command at the top of the stretch to win this seven-furlong maiden by two lengths on the closing day of the Saratoga meet. The 3-year-old colt from the second crop of ALTERNATION raced just off the pace in a 10-horse field after breaking from the inside post. DR. DEVERA’S WAY began his rally midway around the turn, opened up to be 3 1/2 lengths in front in upper stretch and remained on top while in hand at the wire. Lifetime record: 7-1-0-1, $30,340.
