The best 3-year-old filly in America ran yesterday at Laurel Park. That statement comes from Ernie Paragallo, who happens to own the filly, Amazing Buy. The daughter of High Yield, whom Paragallo bought one year ago for $350,000, won the $75,000 Wide Country Stakes for her third triumph in four starts. Based at Aqueduct, Amazing Buy has won two stakes already this year. "She's as good as any 3-year-old filly in America right now," Paragallo said. "She's the best filly I've owned." Paragallo, who lives on Long Island, campaigned two outstanding colts: Unbridled's Song, who won the Breeders' Cup Juvenile in 1995 and Florida Derby and Wood Memorial Stakes in 1996, and Artax, who was champion sprinter in 1999.
