With The Moonlight gives Appleby sweep of middle legs of Caesars Turf Triple with rallying G3 Saratoga Oaks Invitational score

That decision paid off when both returned to win their respective next starts as Nations Pride captured the Grade 1 Caesars Saratoga Derby Invitational on Saturday and With The Moonlight took command in deep stretch to post a 1 3/4-length score in Sunday’s Grade 3, $700,000 Saratoga Oaks Invitational at Saratoga Race Course.

But CHC Inc. and WinStar Farm's Life Is Good, the esteemed 4-year-old son of Into Mischief, asserted his dominance to come out on top in the nine-furlong test for older horses at Saratoga Race Course.
