Saratoga: Lethal Combination wins Saranac


  Lethal Combination (9th, $8.60) trailed a fast pace, circled widest into the stretch rallying in tandem with Turf Melody, and outfinished that rival by a half-length to win the Grade 3 Saranac Stakes for 3-year-olds.

  Trained by Kiaran McLaughlin and ridden by Alan Garcia, Lethal Combination ran 1 3/16 miles over a very firm Mellon turf course in 1:53.18.

  Turf Melody was second by three lengths over Fantastico Roberto, who pressed Devon Rock through fast fractions of 46.49 and 1:10.79 and edged Mystic for the show spot.
