The Kelso Handicap – Grade II (P3)
1 Mile Dirt Stake Purse $300.000 Open 3 Year Olds And Up.
1st Give Your All, trained by Mb Stables
Gaining a first route success at grade two level is pretty good but when you consider this multiple grade one winner was given a feather weight then its really not much of a stretch. Held up as usual he pulled his way into the race and went away for a fairly facile one length win and will no doubt be aimed at a repeat in the Malibu if he doesnt make any of the BC fields.
2nd Port On The Horizon, trained by D J C racing Stables
This grand campaigner ran the stalk but didnt have the legs when challenged by the winner. This was another honest effort though and as he nears the $4K in prize money i hope his trainer keeps him going until he can pass the memorable milestone.
3rd Enshrined, trained by Mb Stables
Kept on well enough for third just a length off his stable mate this was another good effort.
4th Banshee Star, trained by Joseph Racing
Kept on at the one pace for fourth which wasnt a bad effort giving weight to older and more experienced horses. I would imagine he will be wanting a few more furlongs at this level.
