It's Tricky - TVG Coaching Club American Oaks (G1) [02:08]
It's Tricky wore down Plum Pretty in an exhilarating stretch battle on Saturday at Saratoga Race Course to take the 95th renewal of the Grade 1, $250000 TVG Coaching Club American Oaks for 3-year-old fillies. Trying 1 1/8 miles for the second in her career, It's Tricky tugged at jockey Eddie Castro as she raced outside horses in second, shadowing pacesetter and Kentucky Oaks winner Plum Pretty through fractions of 23.88 and 47.55. The top two began to sneak away from their opponents on the far turn, and they moved in tandem until It's Tricky gained the upper hand with a sixteenth to travel en route to a three-quarter length triumph.

Inherit the Gold - 2011 Excelsior (G3) [02:04]
Inner track dynamo Inherit the Gold reeled off a fifth consecutive win Saturday afternoon at Aqueduct Racetrack, brilliantly transferring his form to the main track to take the 99th running of the Grade 3, $100000 Excelsior. It was the first graded stakes victory for the 5-year-old son of Gold Token, who patiently stalked front-running Understatement through early fractions of 24.75 and 49.47. Easily overtaking the pacesetter as they turned for home, Inherit the Gold drew off to win by 6 ¼ lengths. Sent off as the 7-5 favorite in the field of five, Inherit the Gold completed 1 1/8 miles in 1:50.34 returned $4.80 to his backers in the Caribbean Day crowd of 6317. "It was a perfect trip," said Jimmy Hooper, who earned his first graded stakes win as a trainer in the Excelsior. "Eddie [Castro] knew he might have to stay a little closer today and he did. It's whenever he decides he wants to make the move. Eddie's done a great job with him." Castro piloted the New York-bred gelding to all four of his inner track victories this winter -- two optional claimers, the Mr. International overnight stakes and the Kings Point -- and has been Inherit the Gold's regular rider since October. "There was only one horse with speed in the race, so I could stay fairly close," Castro said of the Excelsior. "I rode him the same today; I didn't want to change. When I asked him to move, he did. He's getting better. It was a tough race today. There were a lot of nice horses." Now 7-3-2 from 14 ...

More Than a Reason - 2010 Queens County (G3) [02:22]
More Than a Reason captured the 105th running of the Grade 3 Queens County at Aqueduct Racetrack in late-running fashion Saturday afternoon, posting a last-to-first upset victory in New York's final graded stakes race of the year. Trailing as Seniors Pride led through opening fractions of 24.91 and 50.49, More Than a Reason advanced on the far turn to close willingly through the stretch under Eddie Castro and prevail by a head over Stormy's Majesty, who pressed the pace throughout. The final time for the 1 3/16-mile race was 1:57.69 over Aqueduct's fast inner track. "I just play around with him," said Persaud, who claimed the 5-year-old son of More Than Ready for $15000 at Aqueduct in November 2008. "I baby him. He's my best horse. I don't train him hard, I just run him. That's all he does. He's big hearted, but you have to ride him right. One run, that's it. If you keep him too close to the pace or try to move too early, you get nothing." Persaud, who trained More Than a Reason to a third-place finish in last year's edition of the Queens County, said he had been pointing toward this race, which marked the first victory in a graded stakes for both horse and trainer. Sent off at 19-1, the second-longest shot on the board in the field of six, More Than a Reason returned $40.20 to his backers in the crowd of 5444 and earned $60000 for owner Anthony Calabrese. With a lifetime record of 12-9-11 from 60 starts, More Than a Reason has now earned $477720. Favored Arson Squad ...
