1st Sonador, trained by Night Rider Stables

A second graded stakes score on the year for this runner as he ran a big race and beat this field by three quarters of a length. He was in a good spot early on and then he just started to run by and edge clear late. He ran the distance in 1:34.20 and earned $180.000 for the win.

2nd Smoking Makes You Il, trained by Maxmillion Farm

A big run from this horse here as he ran a very second in here. He was up close the first quarter of a mile and then he dropped back in the middle part of the race but he did come back on down the stretch for a big second place finish.

3rd Brady Is A Lady, trained by Sharis Stables

An unlucky horse right here as he always seems to show up and run a big race but he just can’t seem to win. He was pretty far back early on and he came with his late run which he usually does. He was rolling late and he only got beat by a length.

4th Caydens Camel, trained by D J C Racing Stables

Well this horse was put against it right out of the gate as he went straight to the lead from an outside post. He just had no shot really by going to the lead and trying to take this field gate to wire. But he ran very good to at least hold on for fourth.

Summary

Well Sonador ran a very big race to get the win in here. It was his second graded stakes win on the year and he should have a chance at maybe making the Breeders Cup Dirt Mile field based on graded stakes points. Congratulations to Sonador and Night Rider Stables.
