HAMBURG, N.Y. --- It's only been three races but Larjon Legacy is making a name for herself at Buffalo Raceway as she collected her third straight victory in as many starts in 2022 with a solid 2-1/4 length decision over Stay Beautiful in the featured $13,500 Open I-II Pace for the ladies on Wednesday night (March 16).

Larjon Legacy is a perfect 3-for-3 on the 2022 season.    
With wins of 8-1/4 and 4-1/4 lengths against softer damsels earlier this season, Larjon Legacy jumped up in class and didn't find the stiffer competition much of an issue. 
With Drew Monti in the sulky, Larjon Legacy was sent off the heavy favorite and didn't disappoint. She fired off the gate and took command midway the backstretch the first time. With fractions of :29.2, :59.2 and 1:28.2 over the fast track, Larjon Legacy ($2.90) wasn't tested at all in the final quarter, finishing the mile in 1:57.1.
The only question would be who would collect the minor spoils and it was Stay Beautiful (Braxten Boyd) who finished in second with Valentine Delight (Jim Morrill Jr.) striding in for third.
Owned by Rocco Stebbins and trained by Joe Skowyra, Larjon Legacy (Mister Big-Saramotion) is a 7-year-old mare who has now won $14,750 in the campaign and $133,487 lifetime.
A pair of drivers, Morrill Jr. and Boyd made their seasonal debut at Buffalo Raceway and both made their presence felt. 
Morrill Jr. swept the early daily double aboard Sapphire Love Chip ($2.60) and Tucson Breeze ($5.00) while Boyd took victories on Leaping Legend ($7.60) and Delilah De Vie ($4.20). 
Monti, fresh off hitting the 2,000 career win mark on Saturday, started on his next plateau with a double.
Shawn McDonough topped the trainers with a triple.
Racing will return on Saturday night at 6 p.m. with a nine-race card slated.
