Tracy Farmer’s Perfect Alibi carved a path to victory on the rail and picked up her first top-level score in the $350,000 Spinaway Stakes (G1) at Saratoga Race Course.
Ridden by Irad Ortiz Jr., the 2-year-old filly rated just off the pace through much of the seven-furlong test. Turning for home, Perfect Alibi was angled back toward the rail, set down for a drive, and got up just in time to score over favorite Frank’s Rockette in a final time of 1:23.44.
Figure of Speech took third, followed by Miss Peppina in fourth.
It marked the second stakes score for the Mark Casse-trained Sky Mesa filly, who entered off a half-length win over Frank’s Rockette in the Aug. 4 Adirondack Stakes (G2).
