Ashkal Way wins the 2006 Bernard Baruch Handicap at Saratoga

The $200,000 Bernard Baruch Handicap (G2) featured older horses going 1 1/8 miles on the Mellon Turf Course. 6-1 shot T.D. Vance went to the front right away and saved ground along the rail while battling with 7-10 co-favorite Etesaal through fractions of 24.42, 48.23, and 1:11.79. T.D. Vance still held the lead 1 furlong out, but Etesaal's entrymate Ashkal Way was gaining with every stride after circling the field four wide on the far turn. Through the stretch, the closers passed the tiring T.D. Vance, with Ashkal Way finishing in front by a neck over 6-1 Dreadnaught, in a time of 1:46.78. It was just 3/4 length back to 26-1 longest shot Interpatation in third.
