Good Luck Gus edges One Sided by a half-length in Albany at Saratoga


SARATOGA SPRINGS, New York — Good Luck Gus split horses in mid-stretch and outran pacesetter One Sided to the wire for a half-length victory Friday in the $250,000 Albany at Saratoga Race Course.

The race for 3-year-olds anchored six stakes worth $1.15 million on an 11-race program dedicated to horses bred in New York state, coming on the eve of Triple Crown champion American Pharoah's return in the Grade 1 million Travers.

Ridden by Luis Saez for his third consecutive victory on the card and second straight in a stakes, Good Luck Gus ran 1 1/8 miles in 1:50.81 over a fast main track, returning $9.10, $4.20 and $3.

One Sided held on for second, paying $3.50 and $2.60. It was a length back to Bullheaded Boy, who returned $3.60 to show. Force, the 2-1 favorite in a field of six, was fourth.

Sudden Surprise was a front-running winner in the $200,000 Funny Cide; 18-1 shot Jc's Shooting Star edged Conquest Superstep to take the $200,000 Fleet Indian; She's All Ready coasted to a win in the $200,000 Seeking the Ante; Lubash got past 6-5 favorite King Kreesa to reverse their finish in last year's $150,000 West Point; and The Tea Cups, ridden by Saez, won the $150,000 Yaddo by a length over Old Harbor.
