Saratoga: Straight Story wins West Point


  Despite stumbling at the start, Straight Story (8th, $4.10) pressed Spa City Fever through the opening fractions and drew off to win the 31st running of the West Point Stakes by a length over longshot Pocket Cowboys.

  Straight Story ran 1 1/8 miles on a firm inner turf course in 1:48.58, and was the third winner on the card for Javier Castellano.

  Icabad Crane finished third.

  Banrock, who had won the West Point the last two years, was along to be fourth.
