Street Game Tunes Up for West Point

Street Game, the 4-year-old winner of the Grade 3 Hill Prince last year at Belmont Park, worked five furlongs in 59.00 seconds Monday morning in preparation for the $150,000 West Point on August 16 at Saratoga.

 

The son of Street Cry was caught galloping out six furlongs in 1:12 by trainer Philip Serpe, who liked what he saw in the work.

 

“He went very good, and we’re cautiously optimistic,” said Serpe, who is trying to get a second stakes win for Street Game in the 1 1/16-mile West Point on the turf.

 

Street Game was third to Compliance Officer in the Kingston in May after trying to rally from sixth place. In his recent allowance score, he raced much closer to the pace. His Hill Prince victory – in which he defeated quality stakes horses Air Support, Humble and Hungry and Casino Host, among others – came when he led the entire race.
