Larjon Legacy makes it four straight wins at Buffalo.    
It was Larjon Legacy's fourth consecutive win in as many tries in 2022 as she easily topped Valentine Delight by 3-1/4 lengths in 1:57.2 over the fast track. All of her victories have come in blowout fashion with her narrowest win a 2-1/4 length score on March 16.
There was a mild battle for the lead as Larjon Legacy (Drew Monti), Valentine Delight (Jim Morrill Jr.) and New Number Who Dis (Michael Deruntz) were all involved. But before the field hit the opening marker, Larjon Legacy was in control and there was no stopping her from there.
With fractions of :29.1, :58.3 and 1:28.2, Larjon Legacy found no takers down the stretch and easily strolled to the win. Valentine Delight had to settle for second with Pretty Blue Angel (David McNeight III) finishing in third.
Owned by Rocco Stebbins and trained by Joe Skowyra, Larjon Legacy (Mister Big-Saramotion) is a 7-year-old mare who has put $22,200 in the bank this year and $140,987 in her career. 
The undercard to the main event was the $11,300 pace for the distaff pacers and the heavily favored Sapphire Love Chip ($3.00) didn't disappoint her faithful backers by scoring a neck victory over Odds On Dead Heat in 1:59.2.

Sapphire Love Chip (#3) hangs on for narrow victory.    
Scoring from the three post, Sapphire Love Chip (Morrill Jr.) managed to get to the top early and was able to set fractions of :29.3, 1:00.2 and 1:30.3. Down the lane, Sapphire Love Chip held off a mild bid from the pocket sitting Odds On Dead Heat (Kevin Cummings) to register the victory. She Can Party (Jim McNeight Jr.) rallied late for the show position.
Owned by the Crazy Parrot Farm LLC, Sapphire Love Chip (Hypnotic Blue Chip-So Long My Love) is a 5-year-old mare who has now won three times in eight tries in 2022. The victory upped her seasonal earnings to $19,104 and $64,470 lifetime.
Racing will continue on Saturday evening with an 11-race program set for 6 p.m.
