Super Saks runs rings around Carousel S. field
Super Saks captured the $150,000 Carousel S. in front-running style on Thursday at Oaklawn Park to give the 4-year-old Sky Mesa filly her second career stakes victory. 

Winner of the Dream Supreme S. last November at Churchill Downs, Super Saks wasted little time flashing her considerable speed in the Carousel. Though off a beat slow, she quickly recovered to set a blistering pace of :21 4/5 for the quarter and :45 3/5 for the half-mile. Showing no signs of slowing down in the stretch, the gray filly rolled to a 1 1/2-length score in 1:10 3/5 for the six furlongs on the fast surface.

“Once we got to the lead it was drama free,” said winning rider Channing Hill. “I was a bit concerned that last time, she was fast but, seemed to stay one pace from there. Today, she shot out of the gate, was steady down the backside, took a quick breath around the turn and from the top of the lane she shot home. That filly that ran behind us (4-5 favorite Haveyougoneaway), she is a classy filly too. My filly brushed her to the side today and got the win.” 

Super Saks has now won 6 of 18 starts and has earned $322,080 for owners Robert Baker and William Mack. She is trained by Hall of Famer D. Wayne Lukas.

Sky Mesa's 2016 slate includes eight stakes horses, led by Grade 1 winner Giulia.
