Bill Puts the Fire Out in Hedeman Mile

Hedeman Mile
1 Mile Dirt Stake Purse $100.000 Open 3 Year Olds Foaled In NM.

1st     Fire Marshall Bill     Jive Inc.       Sarmiento R

With the filly removed from the equation it was left to the two runners we all expected to fight out the finish to do exactly that. I think we can now say that this ones future is on dirt rather than turf after this game win making it two from two for the season both over this course and distance. He got the perfect stalk from the ace draw and when that happens they usually win but he had to fight his stable mate very hard for the victory. There will be more to come for this half brother to Howl To The Hound.

2nd     [Rename1653]    Jive Inc.      Juarez A J Jr

Got away quickly, or rather was the one the race engine chose to head the procession and held that lead almost long enough to win. It is a pattern that we see day in and day out with this sort of field size and it played out just as most of the others do. When he can find a race without a penalty he will be winning again.

3rd       Average Savage      Threshold        Fuentes M T Jr

Whilst the second horse was chosen to be the leader this was was chosen to be the trailer and sure enough the playbook wound forward to see him closing too late for third.

4th    Snarl      High Voltage       Carreno J

He never really seemed happy with where he was put in the running and was never seen with much of a winning chance, whacked away in the end for consolation money.
