Gold Like U draws off


Saratoga-based shipper Gold Like U, off at 4-5, vied for the lead with 8-5 second-choice Miss Silver Image on the turn and shook loose when roused in the lane, drawing off to win the $50,000 Arctic Queen at Finger Lakes by a widening 6 1/2 lengths.

Gold Like U, ran the six furlongs in 1:10.76 under John Grabrowski for trainer Gary Contessa and owner Winning Move Stable. She paid $3.60. A 6-year-old mare, she has now won 11 of 30 starts and rised her lifetime earnings to $389,403.

Coney Island Baby closed for second, a length ahead of Watral's Dahlia in the race restricted to New York-bred 3-year-old fillies.
