Saint Liam Gets Help, Gallops in Woodward

Trainer Richard Dutrow Jr. figured all he needed in order to get Saint Liam home on top in Saturday's $490,000 Woodward (gr. I) was to put a little pace pressure on Commentator, who upset his star in the Whitney (gr. I). Dutrow's strategy worked to perfection as Saint Liam galloped home an easy winner at Belmont Park.

Luas Line Finds Garden Spot at Belmont

Irish invader Luas Line found Saturday's modest offering of three opponents in the $260,000 Garden City Breeders' Cup Handicap (gr. IT) much more to her liking than her previous American visit. She buried odds-on choice My Typhoon in the stretch for an easy victory on the Belmont Park lawn.

Oratorio Collars Motivator, Wins Irish Champion

Oratorio appears to have Motivator's number. In July, the Danehill colt handed Motivator his first defeat in the Coral-Eclipse Stakes (Eng-I). On Saturday, the Coolmore colt went two-for-two against the Vodafone Derby (Eng-I) winner, with a gutsy half-length victory in the $1.25 million Baileys Irish Champion Stakes (Ire-I) at Leopardstown.
