Fabulous Strike, coming off a front-running victory in the Fall Highweight Handicap, heads an 8-horse field in the $100,000 Gravesend Handicap (gr. III) at Aqueduct on Saturday. For 3-year-olds and up over six furlongs on the inner track, the Gravesend is the final graded stakes in New York this year. A 5-year-old gelding by Smart Strike, Fabulous Strike has made just four starts this year, with two wins and a second to his credit. In addition to the Nov. 27 Fall Highweight, he won the Vincent Moscarelli Memorial Stakes at Delaware Park and was beaten just a head in the grade I Vosburgh Stakes.
