Philadelphia: City Sharpster romps


City Sharpster ($8.40) drew off to an 8 3/4-length victory in the $100,000 Larry Riviello President's Cup, covering a mile and 70 yards in 1:42. Saratoga Blues, the even-money favorite, was eased and finished last in the field of five 3-year-olds.

On the undercard, Night Caller ($19) upset the $75,000 Donald LeVine Memorial for older sprinters, and Betty's Hat ($3.80) captured the $50,000 Pistol Packer Handicap for statebred fillies and mares.
