    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.

  • Luas Line wins Garden City 'Cap.

    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.
