Silver Setbus Converts to Gold in the Colors

Ekli Stables Silver Setbus (#4) between horses just gets up to take the Gr-3 Colors Stakes at CD on Saturday.

Colors – Grade III
6 Furlongs Dirt Stake Purse $100.000 Filly & Mare 3 Year Olds And Up.

1st Silver Setbus, trained by Ekli Stable
Settled back from the gate but was always reasonably close up and never looked in trouble. Making ground as they entered the stretch he dug deep to pick up the leaders and kept on strongly for a neck win. This is her second grade three win and considering she is a four year old this was probably better than her win as a three year old suggesting she is improving. A good win and it will be good to see her move up the grades.

2nd Cozzene Scandal, trained by Night Rider Stables
Big odds considering her decent form she got closer to Silver Setbus than she did in the Sugar Swirl last year and is another who looks capable of running in a higher grade.

3rd Jewel In The Sand, trained by John Henry
Stalked the lead and looked the winner with a furlong to run but faded in the muddy ground to finish a close third. This was a good effort considering she was unsuited by the going.

4th Gottahotone, trained by Ollies
Shot forward by the wide gate she weakened as happens most of the time from a wide gate to finish a pretty tired fourth.
