Help identifying this maple sapling

Rack-n-CrackJuly 13, 2012

See picture. This came up and I didn't want to get rid of it, it's growing quite fast and if it's a desirable breed I would rather find it a good home somewhere in my lawn.

I was thinking sugar?

It's a little young to be sure, because they can look a little different when very young, and then change as they age. But to me, it also appears to be a seedling red maple.
