HAMBURG, N.Y. --- Pretty Blue Angel ($22.40) left the field feeling 'blue' in Buffalo Raceway's $13,500 Open I-II Open Handicap Pace for the fillies and mares on Wednesday evening (March 9) with a surprising but convincing 2-1/4 length score over McDelicacy in 1:59.4 over the fast track.

Pretty Blue Angel leaves them feeling 'blue' in feature.    
The start of the main event looked like it was going to be an early battle between Pretty Blue Angel and No Where To Hide. It quickly ended before it really got started as No Where To Hide jumped it off heading around the first turn, leaving Pretty Blue Angel alone on top.
With driver David McNeight III steering Pretty Blue Angel uncontested through panels of :30.2, 1:00.4 and 1:30.4, it was clear sailing down the stretch. McDelicacy (Kevin Cummings) was able to pick up the second place check with Sweet Young Thing (Kyle Cummings), the lukewarm favorite, finishing third.
Owned by Justina Ohol and trained by Michael Ohol, it was the first victory in three appearances in 2022 for the 5-year-old mare Pretty Blue Angel (Big Jim-Blue Angel Cam). The victory pushed her season winnings to $13,092 and $67,974 lifetime.
Drew Monti, Shawn McDonough and McNeight III led the way for the drivers on the night with doubles. Michael Ohol and McDonough had a pair of training wins.
Racing will continue on Saturday evening with a 10-race program slated to begin at 6 p.m.
