Mystical Star - 2012 New York S. (G2) [02:24]
Mystical Star atoned for her previous misbehavior in the starting gate by breaking in a timely manner and turning back Aruna's stretch run to win Belmont Park's Grade 2, $200000 New York for turf fillies and mares on Saturday. In her previous race, Belmont's Grade 2 Sheepshead Bay on May 26, Mystical Star found herself 19 lengths behind at the first call after beating the gate, rearing up, and veering inward. She closed resolutely to be third under the finish line before being disqualified and placed last of eight for her premature start. This time, Mystical Star was away in second as she tracked long shot pacesetter The Underling for a half-mile before assuming command along the backstretch while receiving pressure from Hit It Rich. Set down as the field turned for home, Mystical Star kicked away from Hit It Rich, then gave Sheepshead Bay winner Aruna the cold shoulder to register a one-length victory. Mystical Star, a 4-year-old who went off as the 9-2 fourth choice, paid $11.80 for a $2 win wager and completed 1 ¼ miles over the firm inner turf course in 2:00.17.

CC's Pal - 2012 Vagrancy Handicap (G2) [01:55]
Fighting back along the rail after losing the lead in deep stretch, CC's Pal put away favored Nicole H in the final jumps Saturday afternoon to take the 62nd running of the Grade 2, $200000 Vagrancy Handicap at Belmont Park by a neck.

Once straightened for home, Nicole H charged up on the outside and stuck a nose in front with 110 yards to go, only to relinquish the lead to the game CC's Pal in the final strides. Her winning time for the 6 ½ furlongs was 1:16.10.

Better Lucky - 2012 Sands Point (G2) [02:10]
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.

Mark Valeski - 2012 Peter Pan (G2) [02:14]
After a pair of narrow defeats in Kentucky Derby prep races this spring at Fair Grounds Race Course, Mark Valeski earned his first graded stakes win Saturday afternoon at Belmont Park when he captured the 58th running of the Grade 2, $200000 Peter Pan Stakes, the local springboard to the Grade 1, $1 million Belmont Stakes on June 9. Caught wide out of the gate, Mark Valeski settled well off the rail in midpack as longshot Right to Vote swiftly guided the field through opening fractions of 22.71 and 45.35. Swung four wide turning for home, Mark Valeski was put to a drive through the stretch, wresting the lead away from the pacesetter just past the eighth pole and going on to a 1 ¼-length victory. A determined Right to Vote held sway over Street Life, who closed from last to get third. Mark Valeski's final time for 1 1/8 miles was 1:48.31. Sent off as the 6-5 favorite in the field of 10, he returned $4.70.
