rcadia Stables’ Opera Heroine, on key throughout Saratoga Race Course’s $74,000 Mrs. Ogden Phipps, jumped to the lead at the seventh of nine fences and repelled late challenges by Magalen O. Bryant’s Well Fashioned and Irvin S. Naylor’s Lonesome Nun to win by three lengths last Thursday. Well Fashioned finished second, 3 1/4 lengths clear of Lonesome Nun in the first National Steeplechase Association stakes for fillies and mares at the historic New York track. Both were making their first starts for new owners after private sales.
