Gomez, Midnight Lute roll on in BC Sprint

Garrett Gomez continued his winning ways, taking his fourth Breeders’ Cup race of the weekend and becoming the first jockey to win three in one day when he guided Midnight Lute to a second consecutive victory in the $2 million Sprint. Midnight Lute’s win, a 1 3/4-length score over Fatal Bullet, was every bit as impressive as his 4 3/4-length romp in the slop last year at Monmouth Park in New Jersey. Sent postward as the second choice at 5-2, Midnight Lute scored his sixth victory in 13 races and his third in four tries at the six-furlong Sprint distance. Street Boss, the 2-1 favorite, also closed well but had to settle for third best, 1 3/4 lengths behind the runner-up.
