So Many Ways, bred in the Keystone State by John R. Penn and John C. Penn, rolled to 1-1/2 length victory in the Gr. 3 Schuylerville Stakes for 2-year-old fillies today, covering the six furlongs in 1:11.51 for trainer Tony Dutrow.
A daughter of young sire Sightseeing, So Many Ways broke her maiden at Parx on June 9, a race I was fortunate enough to see in person. Normally, horses that break their maidens at the Bensalem oval don't usually move onward and upward at venues like Saratoga, but So Many Ways isn't your typical Parx graduate, nor is Dutrow your typical Parx trainer.
So Many Ways is owned by Maggi Moss, and hopefully we will see her at Saratoga again before the meet ends.

Champion Royal Delta headlines the prestigious $750,000 Delaware Handicap (Gr. 2) at Delaware Park tomorrow, and this should be an interesting renewal of the Stanton oval's keystone event. Looking to give Royal Delta a run for the money are Awesome Maria, Cash for Clunkers, and Love and Pride, as well as three others, and the 1-1/4 mile test goes off at approximately 5:45 p.m. If you're in the area, stop by the beautiful Stanton racetrack to see these fine fillies and mares.
