Tar Heel Mom Wins At Saratoga

The splendidly named Tar Heel Mom, going stronger than ever at age six, added to her already splendid record when she overpowered four rivals and easily won the $150,000 Honorable Miss Stakes Gr. II this afternoon at Saratoga.

By Flatter, out of Perpetual Light, by Sunny's Halo, Tar Heel Mom earned $90,000 to her now impressive bankroll of $778,392.  She is a half-sister to Preakness runner-up Scrappy T.

We managed to grab a tie and camera and arrive in the paddock just in time for the ninth race.  The betting favorite, Tar Heel Mom, looked great getting ready for the race and even better once the race began.

A wet racetrack after a steady rain the night before was clearly to her liking.

And, yes, we did cash a bet...
