Corleone Kosmos followed live cover and swept past the tired leaders to win the $200,000 Arthur J. Cutler Memorial in his 2008 debut Saturday night at the Meadowlands.

The 6-year-old gelding surpassed $1 million in career earnings and equaled the stakes record with a 1:52.2 clocking. The race is named for the late New York restaurateur whose ventures included Carmine\'s, Virgil\'s and Ollie\'s Noodle Shop. 

San Remo Kosmos and Green Day exchanged leads through swift early fractions of :26.4 and :55.2, setting an ideal pace for closers. Lanson was first to attack on the outside, towing Corleone Kosmos into perfect striking distance. Campbell hustled Corleone Kosmos past his cover for a 1 ¼-length tally. He paid $4, $2.80 and $2.60. Knight Of Intrigue closed stoutly for third.

Corleone Kosmos hit the board in 12 of 14 starts in 2007 and counted the Nat Ray Invitational among his six wins. Ross Croghan trains the 6-year-old gelding for Arthur and Scott Rudolph of Bohemia, N.Y., and Bernard Owen of Long Beach, N.Y. (Meadowlands
