Tuttipaesi, a horse bred in Ireland (IRE), made every call a winning one before an enthusiastic crowd of 8,554 in the inaugural running of the $75,000 Suffolk Downs Distaff Turf Stakes on Saturday, October 3 at Suffolk Downs in East Boston.
Trained by Bill Mott, the Hall of Fame conditioner who saddled champion Cigar to back-to-back victories in the Massachusetts Handicap, Tuttipaesi broke alertly under jockey Christopher DeCarlo and went to the lead from the gate. She began to open up her advantage as they turned for home and drew off to win by 3 ¼ lengths, completing the distance of about a mile and a sixteenth in 1:47.86.
“They said to break and let her tell me what she wanted to do and not to fight with her,” said DeCarlo, “so I did just that and she ran great.”
Owned by Valor Ladies partnership, the gray daughter of Clodovil (IRE) earned the sixth victory of her career and returned $7.80, 3.40 and 2.80. Hellenistic paid $4.40 and 3.20 while Maximova returned $3.40. It was the second win of the day for Mott and DeCarlo, who also teamed up to win the eighth race with Kentucky-bred Divine Praises ($4.40).
The track also hosted three $75,000 stakes races for Massachusetts-bred horses. Marcus Vitali saddled Miss Wilby ($2.40) to win the Louise Kimball Stakes with Tammi Piermarini in the irons. Worth the Worry ($2.80) romped by 9 ½ lengths in the Last Dance Stakes under jockey Jose Baez for trainer Jonathan Buckley. In the First Episode Stakes, Piermarini notched her second win of the day aboard the front-running Navy Nurse ($3.40) for trainer Jay Bernardini.
The third and final Racing & Food Truck Festival is scheduled for Saturday, October 31, which coincides with the second day of the Breeders’ Cup.
