1st Weak Sheik, trained by Mb Stables

What an impressive run by this horse right here to earn that grade one glory. His record is now three wins and a second in four starts. He sat midpack early on in the race and then made a very big run and finished very nicely to get the win. He ran the race in 1:22.12 and earned $180.000 for the win.

2nd Commanding Bee, trained by Serenity Stables

This horse also ran very big to come back off a maiden win to run second in a grade one in his first start against winners. He cut back from the mile maiden breaking win to this seven furlong distance to run very good. He came from way back to only get beat by a head for this win in here.

3rd Chrystal Believer, trained by Maxmillion Farm

Another who came from way back in the field and he actually came from last to run third and only get beat by three quarters of a length in the end. He really ran a great race and eventually he is going to win one of these grades stakes. Maybe when he goes around two turns he will finally get one of those wins.

4th Hard To Kill, trained by Mb Stables

Another horse who closed from so far back to run very good he came from next to last to get in the money. He only got beat by a length in the end and was flying late to almost get up for a win. He is also one who is going to get a win in one of these races eventually and the two turns races may help him.


A very good race in here and these horses ran a very exciting race. A length separated the top four and Mb Stables had two of the top four. Most of these are probably going to try and aim for the Breeders Cup Juvenile at the end of the year so they will need to be able to go around two turns. Congratulations to Mb Stables and Weak Sheik.
