RUN IT RUNS TO ANOTHER WIN AT GOLDEN GATE FIELDS
ALBANY -- Run It ran to another victory at Golden Gate Fields Sunday.
Run It, who broke his maiden against winners on Nov. 6 at Golden Gate Fields, proved the victory was no fluke when he scored a two-length victory in Sunday's $19,300 feature for 2-year-olds.
A Kentucky-bred colt by Cherokee Run, Run It completed a mile on the synthetic Tapeta surface in 1:39.03 and paid $6.80. Scorpio Dog took second by three lengths over 3-to-2 favorite Skim Scam.
Run It's victory completed a riding double for Kaenel, who also won the second race with Tusko T. ($16.40).
Jockey Frank Alvarado and trainer Frank Lucarelli also won two races Sunday.
Alvarado took the fifth race aboard Galinda ($3.80) and the eighth with Sidepocket Cat ($6.00). Lucarelli sent out Tusko T. to his victory in the second race and also captured the ninth race with Premier Diablo ($10.00).
Racing resumes at Golden Gate Fields Wednesday. Post time is 12:45 p.m.
