Our handicapping stunk, but Shelter At Home smelled like roses, making it three in a row as the bay colt got home first by a neck in The Rego Park, finishing the six and a half furlongs in 1:154 on the AQU dirt.  Front running Ginger Sand had the lead into the lane but could not hold off the winner, settling for the place, and the winner’s stable-mate, Holy Water, closed well to take third.  Only four lengths covered the entire field in this one..
