SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y . -- The old adage pace makes the race certainly applied to Saturdays $500,000 Test Stakes at Saratoga, where the 55-1 Paola Queen proved the beneficiary of a suicidal duel that helped her register an improbable three-quarter-length victory over Lightstream in the prestigious Grade 1 dash for 3-year-old fillies.The stage for Paola Queens victory was set early, when the 6-5 favorite Kareena was pushed through early splits of 21.74 and 43.50 seconds by Mother Goose winner Off the Tracks through the opening half-mile of the seven-furlong Test. Paola Queen was always within easy striking distance of the leaders, racing in the second flight with Lewis Bay, but appeared to be in trouble herself when put under a drive and angled wide by jockey Luis Saez entering the stretch.Kareena was the first to fold turning for home, while Off the Track courageously continued to hold the lead through mid-stretch. Lightstream, well back early, appeared to be rallying best of all from between horses inside the eighth pole under Joel Rosario, but never switched off her left lead. Meanwhile, Paola Queen continued to persevere outside the top pair, ultimately proving best despite drifting some at the end.Lightstream ran down a game but weary Off the Tracks by a neck to finish second. They in turn were followed by Lewis Bay, One True Kiss, Kareena, and Kinsley Kisses.Paola Queen, a daughter of Flatter owned by Grupo Seven C Stable, gave trainer Gustavo Delgado his first Grade 1 victory in the United States. Delgado, who came to this country two years ago from his native Venezuela, stables regularly at Gulfstream Park West but did bring a modest string to Saratoga for the summer.Paola Queen completed the distance in 1:22.32 over a fast track and paid $112.Im very happy, said Delgado, who could barely contain his emotions in the winners circle. Its very important to win a race like this at Saratoga, for the horse, the owner, and the trainer.Saez said he had worked Paola Queen several times and had confidence she would run a big race.I checked behind and nobody was coming, said Saez referring to the stretch run. I saw Joel was coming on the inside, I asked her, and she responded. TAMPA, Fla. -- Jameis Winston and his supporting cast are anything but the same old Tampa Bay Buccaneers.The second-year quarterback led the streaking Bucs (8-5) to their fifth straight win Sunday, a 16-11 victory over the New Orleans Saints that bolstered the young teams growing confidence and playoff prospects.Five in a row is a nice little accomplishment but, were not where we want to be yet, coach Dirk Koetter said. Weve got bigger fish to fry right now.Doug Martin scored on a 1-yard run, Roberto Aguayo kicked three field goals and an improving defense intercepted Drew Brees three times while holding the NFL passing leader without a touchdown pass.Winston had modest statistics, throwing for only 184 yards. He failed to throw a TD pass for the first time in his career, but still outplayed Brees by doing what hes done well during Tampa Bays surge -- take care of the football.Brees began the day leading the league in completions, attempts, completion percentage, passing yards and TD passes, but failed to throw for a touchdown for the second straight week, the first time hes done that in consecutive games since 2009.Its huge. The first time he hasnt thrown a touchdown (against us) and also the first time in Jameis career he hasnt got one, Koetter said. I think that also says a lot about how far our guys have come that we can find different ways to win.Rookie Vernon Hargreaves III and Brent Grimes, cornerbacks brought during the offseason, to overhaul a porous secondary, had two of Tampa Bays interceptions.Safety Keith Tandy picked off the quarterbacks final pass on fourth-and-1 from near midfield in the final minute.Right now were just a confident bunch ... a scary bunch, Tandy said. Keep it rolling.The Bucs have won five straight for the first time since 2002 , the season they went on to win their only Super Bowl. The surge has them in contention for their first playoff berth since 2007.New Orleans (5-8) entered hoping to tighten the NFC South race , but instead dropped three games behind division co-leaders Atlanta and Tampa Bay.Its very tough. But were all professionals here. ... I always believe when you go through moments like these, theres something youre going to be able to pull out thats positive, Brees said.You may not feel it or know it, but it will allow you to accomplish the things in the future you want to accomplish. But its hard to swallow right now.SLOW STARTThe Saints ran justt six plays in the opening quarter and trailed 13-0 before changing momentum of the game with a field goal, followed by a safety on Tampa Bays ensuing possession, which started from the Bucs 1 after Josh Huff fumbled the kickoff before the ball rolled out of bounds.ddddddddddddBrees finished 25 of 41 for 257 yards. He also was intercepted three times during last weeks 28-13 loss to Detroit.Winston was 16 of 26 with no interceptions for the Bucs. He had thrown for at least one touchdown in 28 consecutive games to begin his career.THATS A LOT OF YARDSBrees is in his 11th season with New Orleans and has thrown for more than 4,000 yards every season since signing with the Saints as a free agent in 2006. He reached the plateau again on a completion to Brandon Coleman late in the first half and has 4,000 passing yards through 13 games. Winston is closing in on his second straight 4,000-yard season for the Bucs, who only have one other 4,000-yard season in team history (Josh Freeman 2012).COSTLY MISTAKESThe Saints had three turnovers and also hurt themselves with 13 accepted penalties for 104 yards, including a false start that backed them on second-and-goal in the final minute of the second quarter. They wound up settling for a field goal that trimmed the Bucs lead to 13-8 at the half.They wasted another opportunity to get in the end zone in the third quarter, when Brees 4-yard throw to Brandin Cooks initially was ruled a touchdown that would have given New Orleans the lead, but was overturned following a replay review, which determined the receiver didnt make a clean catch. Wil Lutz has his third field goal of the game -- a 22-yarder -- on the next day, cutting Tampa Bays lead to 13-11 late in the third quarter.I thought the penalties certainly hurt us. It ended up being really the difference, Saints coach Sean Payton said. When we watch this tape were going to see it come up time and time again. We get down in the red zone, false start. Too many third down and long situations ended up costing us. The turnovers as well.UP NEXT:Saints: Continue stretch in which theyll play three of their final four games on the road, traveling to Arizona on Sunday.Buccaneers: Play at Dallas on Sunday night.---For more NFL coverage: and Youth NFL Jerseys Cheap Cheap NFL Womens Jerseys Youth NFL Jerseys Wholesale Youth NFL Jerseys Cheap Cheap NFL Black Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From China ' ' '
