Look of the Lynx by 1 1/2 in Half Moon


EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Look of the Lynx scooted to a second straight win while upsetting two graded stakes winners with a speedy 1 1/2-length victory in the $100,000 Half Moon Stakes Saturday at the Meadowlands.

Ridden by Richard Migliore, the 3-year-old filly won for the fourth time in ten starts while earning her first stakes over fellow longshot Arianna's Passion in 1:08.51. Floral Park Handicap winner Gold Mover finished third while 6-5 favorite Stormy Pick struggled in fifth over a lightning fast


"We've been waiting and waiting for her to show some of the things she's been showing us in the morning," said trainer John Kimmel. "She ran into some tough girls at Gulfstream and had some setbacks, but this was the first time she finally put it all together. I was nervous facing this field since we've been trying to get her into an allowance race at Belmont, but she beat some quality fillies. I see some good things in her future."

Serena's Tune scores in Phoenix

The regally bred Serena's Tune won her second stakes victory and first since moving from trainer Neil Drysdale to Josie Carroll earlier this year when she caught Maypole Dance in the $100,000 Phoenix Stakes.

The $1-million daughter of Mr. Prospector and the first foal out of champion Serena's Song made her first start since finishing fifth in the Ontario Colleen Handicap at Woodbine in August. She got up by a nose in the five-furlong turf sprint under Aaron Gryder in :57.65. Merry Princess finished third.
