The D. Wayne Lukas-trained Grand Reward might have finished third in a conditioned allowance/optional claiming race on the opening day of the Saratoga meeting, but the Hall of Fame trainer has bigger things in mind for the regally-bred son of Storm Cat.Grand Reward, out of champion Serena's Song, is pointed toward the Sept. 3 Forego Handicap (gr. I). "He needed that badly," said Lukas of yesterday's race. "We'll look for the Forego next time out."
