Awesome Gem still has got it at 8. He rallied for a one-length win in the Grade 3, $300,000 Lone Star Park Handicap on Monday, then withstood a claim of foul to nail down the fourth graded stakes win of a career that began in 2006.
Game On Dude, who in March won the Grade 1 Santa Anita Handicap, will lead a contingent of four horses trainer Bob Baffert plans to run Monday on the Million Day card of stakes at Lone Star Park.
Game On Dude's name can be added to the list of Belmont Stakes starters to emerge in the last week. On Saturday, Game On Dude won the Grade 3, $200,000 Lone Star Derby.
Trainer Bob Baffert continued his stranglehold on the Lone Star Derby on Saturday, when Game on Dude gave him his fourth win in the race since Anet took the inaugural running in 1997.
