Native Treasure 5-2 Favorite In Lost In The Fog Stakes

Native Treasure 5-2 Favorite In Lost In The Fog Stakes

     Native Treasure, who led every step of the way en route to winning his career debut by three lengths, is the 5-2 morning line favorite in the $50,000-added Lost in the Fog Stakes at Golden Gate Fields Saturday.

     Saturday is Fan Appreciation Day at Golden Gate Fields.  Post time is 1:15 p.m. and fans attending the races with a paid admission will receive a coupon good for a free gift.  Sports bags, sweatshirts, clocks, frames, blankets and chairs are among the items that will be given away.

     The Lost in the Fog is a five-furlong dash for 2-year-olds and Native Treasure will break from the outside post in a field of nine.  Jockey Francisco Duran was aboard for Native Treasure’s impressive maiden victory and he’ll be back aboard the California-bred colt again Saturday.

     Native Treasure, trained by Ed Moger, Jr., ran 4 1/2 furlongs in a quick :52.59 in his maiden allowance win on  June 1.  Four horses that chased Native Treasure in that race – Saint Prado, Uncle Enroy, Coastal Blessing and Our Worthyendeavor – will try him again in the Lost in the Fog.

     The second choice on the Lost in the Fog morning line is Go Papi Go at 7-2.  Trained by O. J. Jauregui, Go Papi Go ran second to track-record setter Case Cracker (two furlongs in :21.20) in his debut and then came back win a four-furlong maiden allowance race by 4 1/2 lengths on May 11.

     Aaron Gryder, the second-leading rider at Golden Gate Fields, will ride Go Papi Go.

     The field for the Lost in the Fog Stakes, with riders and morning line odds, is as follows: Our Worthyendeavor, Irving Orozco, 30-1; Go Papi Go, Gryder, 7-2; Uncle Enroy, Adrian Perez, 12-1; Tahoe Flash, Abel Cedillo, 8-1; Coastal Blessing, Frank Alvarado, 10-1; Pearl Seeker, Russell Baze, 4-1; Anytime Magic, David Lopez, 8-1; Saint Prado, Diego Sanchez, 6-1; and Native Treasure, Duran, 5-2.
