Artistic Fella\'s 10-race winning streak was snapped at The Red Mile Saturday night in the first race when the Meadowlands Pace winner was beaten by Shark Gesture in 1:50.3, who sprinted home in the :26.4 final quarter to snag the victory in a five-horse overnight race.

Artistic Fella was driven by Mickey McNichol, who settled the horse at the pylons before making a move to the front just after the first-quarter fraction was flashed :28.3. The half was passed in :55.1 and the three quarters in 1:23.4.

In the homestretch Artistic Fella took a couple of bad steps, causing McNichol to stop driving on the colt. Artistic Fella regained his stride and dug in, but couldn\'t hold off Shark Gesture.
