Atina Salsa Turns in Solid Parx Performance

Even on  a Monday when there was very little racing across the country, Two Step Salsa was able to continue on his road to his best season since his first crop hit the track in 2013. Atina Salsa, a 3-year-old filly bred by Get Away Farm, made it two victories in three starts with a solid performance under Mychel Sanchez at Parx Racing. Atina Salsa broke a little slowly in the 6 1/2-furlong race, but Sanchez shot her through on the inside to take the lead nearing the first quarter. She continued on in front the rest of the way, held off two rivals in the stretch, including the 3/5 favorite, and won by one-half length. The filly was sent off at odds of 8-1 and paid $19.40, while earning a check for $11,400.
