You know your stable is in top form when your horse can overcome top weight and the wide draw and still win. To be fair this horse was head and shoulders above the rest and he could’ve carried another 6 Lbs and still not got beaten. This could turn out to be an outside chance in the BC Turf which will be all the better for the owner after they claimed him from Mb Stables for just $25.000 at the start of the year.

I dont know hoe the turf king does it but somehow they got this horse into second despite some very average form. He was never beating the winner and there was only two lengths between him and eighth so i wouldn’t be getting to excited about him but he does look yet another stakes class turfer for the stable.

In the big clump of horses behind the winner he came out best in the photo to take third. This was another honest effort by the seven year old who refuses to get old.
4th Grounded In Reality Mb Stables Saez L
Got onto the speed but couldn’t keep up the gallop and ended up fourth in a whole clump of horses that finished behind the winner.
