Two sets of OSS Gold Series divisions for two-year-old trotting colts and geldings went postward Tuesday evening at Mohawk Racetrack, with Muscle Up The Goal and A Little More Love striking gold for the second time this season.
Muscle Up The Goal drew first blood with a front-stepping score in his $105,000 tilt. The son of Muscle Mass-Tags Goal got stole away with soft, first-half fractions of :29.3 and 1:00 before being pressured to the three-quarter pole in 1:28.2 by Alacrity. That foe leveled off in deep stretch, however, and that allowed Muscle Up The Goal to draw clear by 4-1/2 lengths in 1:57.2. Alacrity held on for the runner-up award, while Gronk rallied late to grab third.
