SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (AP) -- Caller I.D. evened the score with arch-rival Salt Lake when he took the lead at the start and held it throughout for a 5 1/4 -length victory yesterday in the 78th running of the $115,000 Sanford Stakes at Saratoga.
The victory avenged Caller I.D.'s defeat by Salt Lake in the Tremont Stakes at Belmont Park on July 5.
Caller I.D., ridden by Jerry Bailey and carrying 122 pounds, covered six furlongs on the sloppy track in 1 minute, 10 4/5 seconds for his third win in four career starts. The son of Phone Trick-Plagiarizing earned $69,000.
Pick Up the Phone, ridden by Chris Antley and carrying 119, was the runner-up in the field of six 2-year-olds, a neck ahead of Money Run. West by West, Budget Crisis and Salt Lake, the odds-on favorite, completed the order of finish.
