Saratoga Springs, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Four weeks after meeting in the Whitney Handicap, Itsmyluckyday turned the tables on Moreno and captured Saturday's 60th running of the $600,000 Woodward Stakes at Saratoga Race Course.

In the Whitney, Moreno set the pace and held off Itsmyluckyday to win by 1 1/4 lengths. For the 1 1/8-mile Woodward, same distance as the Whitney, Itsmyluckyday and jockey Paco Lopez stalked pacesetter Moreno and his rider Junior Alvarado. The two 4-year-olds went off as 5-2 co-favorites.

Moreno took the lead as the field went under the wire for the first time with Itsmyluckyday running second in the nine-horse field with eight betting interests.  Full Story
