Jonathan Sheppard added to his unprecedented Saratoga Race Course winning streak on Wednesday when Tamara McSorley’s Lune de Caro powered through the stretch to take a $65,000 optional allowance hurdle. The Racing Hall of Fame trainer now has won at least one Saratoga race in 47 consecutive years dating to 1969. Bruce Johnston Jr.’s Orchestra Leader turned back a late challenge from Gil Johnston’s Fantastic Song to preserve second money by a neck.
