SARATOGA SPRINGS, New York — Making her first start in two months, Hidden Brook Farm's Catch My Drift couldn't be caught in an impressive 6 1/4-length victory over favored Tiz So Sweet in the $100,000 Summer Colony Monday at Saratoga Race Course.
Trained by Chad Brown, the 4-year-old daughter of Pioneerof the Nile settled behind pacesetting Tiz So Sweet before making a three-wide move at the top of the stretch and sprinting clear to win in 1:48.72 for 1 1/8 miles over a fast main track.
With meet-leading rider Irad Ortiz, Jr. aboard for his third win on the day, Catch My Drift paid $7.30, $3.10 and $2.60. Tiz My Way returned $2.40 and $2.30 for second, 5 3/4 lengths ahead of Imposing Grace, who paid $4.70 to show.
It was the fourth win from nine career starts and first in a stakes race for Catch My Drift, who finished seventh in last year's Grade 1 Alabama at Saratoga.
