Simple Saver wins Vernon Downs feature.

Simple Saver (Leon Bailey) takes the Fillies and Mares feature ($4600) at Vernon Downs Friday night (May 26).  Love You Bye (Jimmy Wittermore) charged out of the gate and set the early fractions.  Simple Saver ($10.40) a 9 year-old Live Or Die mare, went first over from fourth at the halfway mark.  After three-quarters, the mare owned by Michael Annunziata and trained by Elizabeth Carutenuto would blow right by Love You Bye to score in 1:53.4.

Major Millie (John MacDonald)  came on late to take second.  Love You Bye would hang on for third.

Vernon Downs returns to racing tomorrow (May 27) with a post time of 6:45pm.
