Martin S. Schwartz's favored Gorella, last of a compact field at the top of the lane, surged past her rivals on the far outside to win the $750,000 Beverly D. (gr. IT) by 1 3/4 lengths Saturday on the Arlington Park lawn.
Joseph Allen's favored War Front seized the lead on the turn and held sway through the stretch to register an impressive victory in the $208,200 Alfred G. Vanderbilt Breeders' Cup Handicap (gr. II) at Saratoga Race Course Saturday.
The $1 million grand prize NTRA "Mystery Mutuel Voucher" was redeemed Saturday at Canterbury Park in Shakopee, Minn., outside Minneapolis. The winner is Fred Holland of Mounds View, Minn.
