FARMINGTON, N.Y. – Gold for the King was a popular winner of the $219,613 New York Breeders’ Futurity at Finger Lakes Gaming & Racetrack (FLGR) on Saturday. The talented gelding took the rich stake for New York-bred 2-year-olds in a final six furlong time of 1:10.95.

The $195,568 earner owned by Francis Paolangeli closed wide from his outside post to earn the two and three-quarter length triumph. He was guided to the victory by Eric Cancel.

The Charlton Baker-trainee registered his second win in his third career start and paid $4.20, $2.70 and $2.10. Macho Miah was second and returned $3.00 and $2.20. Eddies Gift was a clear third and paid $3.00.

Arctic Queen
The 17th running of the $50,000 Arctic Queen Stakes is scheduled for Monday, October 3 at FLGR. Seven rivals are entered in the event for older New York-bred fillies and mares.

She’s All Ready is the morning line favorite for the six furlong dash. The 5-2 program choice has a class edge on her rivals but has been lightly raced this summer.

The $256,080 earner trained by James Ryerson has amassed a sum of $265,080. Both of her career wins were achieved as a 2-year-old in 2015.

Dylan Davis will be aboard the 3-year-old filly. Davis had the biggest payday of his career when he last visited FLGR on September 10.
