More Brothers

- The inner track was fast at the Big A today and should remain that way the rest of the weekend. Another winner for Anthony Dutrow, who is having an amazing meeting thus far. Unstoppable Me (Yonaguska) was a first-timer in a two-year old maiden claimer tor a $75,000 tag. She was the 3-1 morning line favorite, but went off as the 9-2 third choice; nonetheless, she wired the field. Dutrow now has four winners with his last six starters here, and three of them have paid 4-1 or more; and he also had two winners out of town on Monday. His record at the meeting is 15-5-3-3

Anthony's brother Richard claimed a first-timer out of the race for $75,000 from Linda Rice. Dressed To Win is a daugther of Exchange Rate who was purchased for $60,000 at Ocala in March. She went off at 9-1 and ran 9th, beaten more than 10 lengths. But the trainer obviously saw something he likes, probably in the morning - the filly has been working steadily since Saratoga. It might be interesting to see what he does with her.
