OCEANPORT, N.J. (AP) — Preakness winner Oxbow is scheduled to arrive at Monmouth Park on Friday, two days before the Grade-1 $1 million Haskell Invitational.

Hall of Fame trainer D. Wayne Lukas' 3-year-old colt is expected to be driven from Saratoga for a role as the probable favorite in Sunday's race. Oxbow ran in all three legs of the Triple Crown, finishing second in the Belmont and sixth in the Kentucky Derby. Gary Stevens is expected to ride.

A field of five or six is expected for the Haskell with Wood Memorial winner Verrazano expected to be Oxbow's main competition.

Other possible entrants are Micromanage, who finished second in the Easy Goer stakes here, Kentucky Derby runner-up Golden Soul and possibly Pick of the Litter and Uncaptured.

SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (AP) — Bigger Is Bettor won by a head in a four-horse battle to the wire to take the $100,000 Evan Shipman Stakes at Saratoga Race Course for horses bred in New York.

Joe Rocco Jr. rode the Rodrigo Ubillo-trained 5-year-old, who ran 1 1/8 miles in 1:51.07 and returned $25.20, $9.60 and $4.40.

Favored Awesome Vision paid $3.80 and $2.70 and Readthebyline, third of six, paid $2.60 to show. Bigger Is Bettor earned $60,000 for owners Chester and Mary Broman.
