    SY DOG (c, 2, Slumber {GB}--My Love Venezuela, by Scat Daddy) gave his sire a third winner in the space of the last eight days with a promising debut tally at Belmont. Sy Dog settled last but one before improving one spot nearing the turn. The homebred traveled full of run for Jose Ortiz into the final three furlongs, was angled out into about the five path off the final corner and stormed down the center of the track to graduate by four good-looking lengths at an overlaid 38-5.

    Slumber's daughter Fluffy Socks won the GII Sands Point S. Oct. 16, while Marvelous Maude won a state-bred allowance Oct. 21.
    Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $49,500.
