Caramel Swirl fills runner-up spot in G1 Ballerina Handicap


Caramel Swirl set herself up for an exciting autumn in the filly and mare sprint division as she chased home Goodnight Olive in the G1 Ballerina Handicap at Saratoga, USA, on Sunday, 28 August.

Last season’s G2 Raven Run Stakes heroine, making only her second appearance of 2022 for Bill Mott, was restrained towards the rear of the field by Junior Alvarado.

Caramel Swirl quickened between horses to go third turning in, with Goodnight Olive taking up the running from Travel Column a furlong and a half from home.

The Godolphin four-year-old also passed Travel Column entering the final furlong and galloped out well, going down by two and three-quarter lengths in the seven-furlong feature.
