Fisher kicks off Saratoga meet by saddling pair of winners
Placeholder Image
Steeplechase racing inaugurated the Saratoga Race Course season last Sunday at the annual Saratoga Open House, and four new winners were created in an action-packed program at the popular community event. Julia Thieriot’s Jimtown kicked off the festivities with a swift victory in the first division of the $20,000 Sport of Kings maiden hurdle for runners five and older. Trained by Mairead Carr and ridden by Robbie Walsh, the 7-year-old Albert the Great gelding prevailed by a neck over owner-trainer Jonathan Sheppard’s Sergeant Karakorum.
