Michael Gill's Umpateedle drove clear in the final furlong to win the $200,000 Endine Handicap (gr. III) for sprinting fillies and mares at Delaware Park Saturday.

The champion Attraction showed her old sparkle when leading all the way to capture the Coolmore Fusaichi Pegasus Matron Stakes (Ire-I) at Leopardstown on Saturday.
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.
Better Talk Now, under confident handling from Ramon Dominguez, won the $500,000 Man o'War (gr. IT) in the final strides by a neck over King's Drama on the Belmont Park turf Saturday.
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.
Battle-tested In the Gold, given a confident ride by Gary Stevens, outlasted odds-on favorite Leave Me Alone to win the $245,000 Gazelle (gr. I) for 3-year-old fillies at Belmont Park Saturday.
Shawanda, easy winner of the group I Darley Irish Oaks in July, takes on older rivals for the first time Sunday in the Prix Vermeille Lucien Barriere (Fr-I) at Longchamp.
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.
Frankie Dettori led all the way on favorite Scorpion to win the $828,000 St. Leger Stakes (Eng-I), the world's oldest classic, on Saturday for the third time.
