Golden Gate Fields notes: Berkeley a Tapeta test for Teaks North, Stryker Phd


Teaks North is a Grade 1-winning millionaire, and Stryker Phd has never run worse than second in a stakes race. Both will have something in common when they enter the starting gate for the Grade 3, $100,000 Berkeley Handicap at Golden Gate Fields on Friday: The 1 1/16-mile race will be the first start for each on a synthetic racing surface.
