The SSM Classic – NG
GP Race 5 1 1/8M – Dirt
Four Year Olds and Up FL Breds
1st Nav Man, trained by Aml Racing
A big win here and this horse proved that his 100 SRF rating in his last race was no fluke. He sat just off the pace most of the way and then turned it on once they entered the stretch. He ended up pulling away to win by an easy two lengths. He covered the distance in 1:47.87 and earned $120.000 for the win.
2nd Serengeti Sands, trained by TwinTowers Racing
Once again this runners late closing was a little bit of a disadvantage as he just could not make up enough ground with the slow pace. He was closer than usual but with the pace being slow the winner had enough in the tank to kick clear. A very good runner up finish.
3rd Broken Tap, trained by Arindel
The extra weight was just too much for this horse here as he just could not carry it at this distance. He loomed up with an eighth of a mile left but the extra was taking its toll at that point and he just could not find enough to get the win. Still a good third though.
4th Bo Knows, trained by John Henry
Not a terrible run from this horse but he has just never been able to comeback to his two year old season when he won a grade one. He sat right off the pace early and then just could not go with the winner and was passed late.
Well Nav Man went ahead and proved that the 100 SRF rating that he got in his previous race was no fluke at all with a very dominating win in this race here. Congratulations to Nav Man and Aml Racing on the win.
