HAMBURG, N.Y. --- Who Says That turned in a lifetime best of 1:55.3 on Wednesday night (June 1) and easily strolled away from Memumsnotnice to take the $8,200 featured pace for the mares at Buffalo Raceway.
Sitting third behind the pace-setting Ugly Betty (Jim Morrill Jr.) and Memumsnotice (Ray Fisher Jr.), Who Says That came first over just past the three-quarter marker with Drew Monti in the sulky.
Turning for home, Who Says That ($11.60) zoomed past the faltering Ugly Betty and never looked back in notching the 1-1/2 length victory. Memumsnotnice got up in time for second while Ugly Betty had to settle for third.
Owned by Vogel & Wags Nags Stable, Jack Rice and Chris Shambo, it was the seventh win in 19 starts in 2016 for Who Says That (Badlands Hanover-Powercorp). It was the first victory in just two starts at Buffalo Raceway for Who Says That, a winner now of $22,762 this season and $49,958 lifetime. Maria Rice handled the training duties.
Todd Cummings finished with a triple with Monti and Fisher Jr. having two each. JD Perrin and Rice scored training doubles.
Racing will continue on Friday night with a 12-race card slated at 5 p.m. There's a $2,020 carryover in the Pick-5 which begins in the fifth race.
