Saratoga: Convocation...barely


  Convocation (7th, $2.60), dropping from a runner-up finish in the Grade 2 Suburban into a second-level allowance, was life and death to get by pacesetter Glenwood Canyon after a stretch-long drive.

  It was tougher than expected, but Convocation's time for the 1 1/8 miles was a solid 1:48.78, including a final three-eighths in 36.25 seconds.

  Glenwood Canyon, 11-1 and entered for the optional $50,000 claim price with no takers, ran the race of his life in defeat.
