For the first six furlongs of the 11/8 Queens County, Crimson Dragon was a non-factor.  Sinissippi Cherokee was loose on the lead taking the field through a half in :47.27 and three-quarters in 1:10.73.  Crimson Dragon was fourth and a good five lengths off of that pace.

Utilizing a powerful three furlong burst, Crimson Dragon sprinted home a length and a quarter in front of Downward Roll and He Needsa Manzillian as that duo DH’d for the place honors.  Sinissippi Cherokee was fourth ahead of Crimson Rioja, Psychotic Ruler, and Booster.

Congratulations to Crimson Dragon and TwinTowersRacing for their victory in the Queens County Handicap at AQU.
