OCEANPORT, USA (AP) — Good Magic , the 1-2 favourite, rolled to a three-length victory in the US$1 million Haskell Invitational on Sunday at Monmouth Park.

The colt, ridden by Jose Ortiz, took command on the final turn and opened a clear lead on the way to the third win in an eight-race career.

Trained by Chad Brown, Good Magic made his first start since the Preakness where he pressed the pace in the slop against ultimate winner Justify before finishing fourth.

Justify, retired last week, went to complete the sweep of the US Triple Crown in the Belmont Stakes.

With the Haskell win, Good Magic is positioned to assume the leadership role among the active three-year-olds. Last year's Eclipse Award winner as champion juvenile will next head to Saratoga for the US$1.25 million Travers Stakes on August 25, according to Brown.

Bravazo was second, with Lone Sailor third.

The time was 1:50.01 for the 1 1/8 miles.
