Congratulations to ECB Spa client Tony Alagna on a great night at Mohawk Racetrack!

CAMPBELLVILLE, August 25 – The combination of driver Randy Waples and trainer Tony Alagna has been red hot at Mohawk Racetrack and Thursday night the hot streak continued.

Alagna sent out three horses on Thursday’s 10-race card and all three scored victories with Waples in the sulky. 

The successful evening for the duo began in the opening race, as rookie trotting colt Signal Hill broke his maiden with a 1:58.3 score. The son of Muscle Hill, who sold for $250,000 at last year’s Lexington Selected Yearling Sale, was making his third career start and trotted home in :27.4 for the victory.

Signal Hill is owned by Brittany Farms, David McDuffee, Marvin Katz and Adriano Sorella.

Vintage Babe gave Waples and Alagna their second victory with a 1:54.2 triumph in the third-race. The sophomore pacing filly was competing at the non-winners of two or $25,000 lifetime level and shot home in :27.3 for her third career score.

The daughter of Vintage Master is owned by Alagna Racing LLC and Jodi Siamis.

The third victory of the night for Waples and Alagna came in the eighth-race, as Winter Harbor picked up his second consecutive victory. The three-year-old son of Muscle Hill grinded away first up throughout the middle-half and pulled ahead in the lane for a 1:56.1 score.

A $240,000 yearling purchase at the 2014 Lexington Selected Yearling Sale, Winter Harbor didn’t make his three-year-old debut until August 5th and now has two wins from three starts to improve his career record to three wins in six starts. He is owned by Brittany Farms, John Cancelliere, Little E LLC and Winter Harbor Partners.

The combination of Waples and Alagna is winning at almost 50 per cent this season at Mohawk. They will team up twice on Friday’s card with a pair of impressive ladies.

Ontario Sires Stakes star Caprice Hill will be looking for her fifth win of the season in the Casual Breeze Stakes, while four-year-old pacing mare Bedroomconfessions has won four of her last five starts and goes for another victory in the Mares Preferred.
