Mountaineer: Crossing Point cruises


Crossing Point ($3) had little problem scoring a wire-to-wire, 4 3/4-length win in Friday night's $77,000 Christmas Stakes at Mountaineer Racetrack.

A 5-year-old trained by Ben Feliciano and ridden by Mario Pino, Crossing Point had most recently set the pace for the first half-mile in the Grade 1 De Francis Memorial Dash at Laurel. It was Crossing Point's second stakes win in three visits to Mountaineer this season. He covered six furlongs over a track rated good in 1:13.23.
