French Appeal ran a huge race coming off of a $35.000 claim for yours truly, giving me my first graded stakes win! Paco Lopez guided the 4 year old gelding towards the back of the pack and made a 4 wide sweeping move and won going away earning $60.000 and a 100 speed figure for his performance. Could this be his break out race? Only time will tell!
Diplomatic Rule ran a solid race rating off of a pretty quick pace up front to earn the place share of $24.000 and a 98 speed figure for DJC.
Quiet Sevens followed the eventual winner but lacked the needed kick to run better than third for owner AER Stables earning a 97 speed figure and $12.000.
Great race by all and congratulations to the top finishers!
