Bar of Gold to try synthetic in Presque Isle Masters


SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. – Trainer John Kimmel scratched Bar of Gold out of her scheduled turf debut in last Friday’s $150,000 Yaddo for New York-bred fillies and mares after the ground came up yielding. On Monday, he worked her a sharp half-mile over the Oklahoma turf in 46.42 seconds.
