Better Lucky - 2012 Sands Point (G2)
Better Lucky made her turf debut a winning one, taking the lead in deep stretch and holding off the furious late drive of Regalo Mia Monday afternoon at Belmont Park to take the Grade 2, $200000 Sands Point by a nose. The 3-year-old Ghostzapper filly, whose victory over a muddy track in her previous start prompted trainer Tom Albertrani to try her on the turf, saved ground within striking range of pacesetter Preach Tome Daddy as she led through an opening quarter-mile in 25.60 seconds and a half in 49.74. Tipped the outside by jockey Eddie Castro as the field turned for home, Better Lucky moved up to duel for the lead with Zultanite through the stretch, edging clear in the final yards and hitting the wire a heartbeat ahead of the fast-closing Regalo Mia. Her time for 1 1/16 miles over firm turf was 1:42.75.
