Northern California notes: Lucarelli starts Golden Gate meet with a bang


Frank Lucarelli couldn’t have asked for a better start to the Golden Gate Fields meet. On Saturday, he won the Miss America on the turf with Stormy Lucy. On Sunday, he sent out Gallant Son for the first time since a third-place finish in the Grade 3 San Francisco Mile on April 27 and saw him win a six-furlong prep for the Nov. 16 Oakland Stakes.
