Einar P. Robsham's The Goo led early and took command down the stretch, drawing off to a 6 1/2-length victory in Belmont Park's Friday feature, a $43,000 allowance sprint for 2-year-olds. Evening Attire finished second in the six-horse field, another 1 3/4 lengths ahead of Wrangler.
The Goo carried 122 pounds with Norberto Arroyo Jr. over seven furlongs in 1:23.75 and earned $25,800. It was the second win in seven starts for the colt, who finished third in the Kentucky Cup Juvenile (gr. III) in his most recent race. The Nick Zito-trained son of Meadowlake finished second in the Tremont (gr. III) at Belmont in July. He was bred in Kentucky by Dr. George S. Stefanis.
The winner returned $4.40, $2.60 and $2.20. Evening Attire paid $2.60 and $2.20 and Wrangler was $2.70 to show. (Chart, Equibase
