Cavorting Wins Ruffian Stakes at Belmont Park
The $250,000 Grade 2 Ruffian Stakes was contested at Belmont Park in Elmont, New York on Saturday, May 14. Fillies and mares four years old and upward were featured when they took to Belmont Park's dirt track and raced one mile. Stonestreet Stables' 5-2 second choice Cavorting bounced back from an unflattering stretch and dominated the field of six, winning by and easy five lengths. Heavy, even-money favorite Carrumba finished second and 4-1 third betting choice Spelling Again came in third. Calamity Kate was fourth followed by Include Betty and Welcome Aboard, to complete the order of finish.
