Gygistar won last year's King's Bishop (gr. I) at Saratoga.
Edward P. Evans' Gygistar won Friday's third race at Saratoga, a six-furlong allowance event, by 5 3/4 lengths under Jerry Bailey. The 4-year-old Prospector's Music gelding had not raced since finishing unplaced in the Deputy Minister Handicap (Gr. III) at Gulfstream Park Feb. 9. He suffered a chip in his knee shortly thereafter.Following a stalking trip, Gygistar hit the wire in 1:09 2/5 over Saratoga's fast track. He returned $3.30. "It went perfectly," said trainer Mark Hennig. "If he comes out of the race well, we'll be looking at the Forego (Aug. 31, grade I)."
