Saturday Khartoum Races Home in SSM Sprint

SSM Sprint
6 Furlongs Dirt Stake Purse $100.000 Open 4 Year Olds And Up Foaled In FL.

1st Saturday Khartoum, trained by Rousse
Stalking the lead this four year old drove best to run out a fairly comfortable three quarter length winner. This was a deserved win after a couple of decent placed efforts and there is no reason this couldnt be the start of a productive season for the son of Hong Kong Phooey

2nd Single One, trained by Running Farms
Kept on well enough for second but never looked like getting to the winner. A good enough effort from a lightly raced sort that suggests one of these statebred purses will be on his radar.

3rd Scripted, trained by Mb Stables
Stayed on well for third but found this trip too sharp.

4th Bolkonski, trained by Fractious
Got the wide gate speed bump and sadly the race looked more like last seasons races as he weakened into fourth. He was certainly forced to race quicker than he wanted by the speed push and that ultimately was his demise.
