Race 2-- Maiden
2 year olds
4 1/2 furlongs
Race Two Starts...
The field for this 2 year old colts maiden is fairly small, due to the race being split in to two because of the large amount of enteries. Race number four on the card has many of the orginial colts entered in this race. Meanwhile, 8 wonderful colts are warming up in the post parade.
Betters choices as the horses load in the gate:
|6||SSF Crypto Star||Lily||6|
War Chant, the colt with the yellow shadow roll, is a strong favorite. SSF Crypto Star also liked by the betters and Double-O-Seven gaining some support as well. The horses are starting to load...War Chant, the 5 horse and favorite, is balking at the gate. He's in...now the 6, 7, and 8 horses are....
And They're Off!
Revolution and Rousillon's Pride off to an early lead. War Chant running on the inside on the rail in 3rd. Back 4 to SSF Crypto Star, and Heads Will Roll. Double-O-Seven, Just Another Hour, and Mario Playstation complete the field as they come around the turn.
Revolution pulling away! An early speed duel between Revolution and Rousillon's Pride! Rousillon's Pride pulling up to challenge Revolution! War Chant is getting rank with his rider being held back off the pace. Here comes Heads Will Roll! Making his bid on the outside, he's coming three wide around horses. Just Another Hour starting to move up.
Double-O-Seven has no where to go around horses. Mario Playstation on his outside, Just Another Hour moving to the rail to save ground. What a traffic jam with these 8 colts! Tightly packed as they move to the stretch, Revolution still maintaining the lead. It's still anybody's race! Rousillon's Pride starting to fade. Just Another Hour tries to squeeze by on the rail. War Chant won't have it! He lunges at the other colt! Mario Playstation and Double-O-Seven are checked and the 5 horses are now back 3 from Revolution, Heads Will Roll, and SSF Crypto Star.
In to the stretch! Revolution is still holding on to the lead! This colt will not give an inch! Heads Will Roll drops back to forth as Just Another Hour finally fights his way to the front to take 3rd. SSF Crypto Star is being asked for all the run he has. But this colt just can't beat Revolution! He's done it! Revolution wins it, back a neck to SSF Crypto Star, then Just Another Hour after a troubled trip. War Chant is the 4th horse past the wire, followed closely by Mario Playstation. Revolution led wire to wire to win the 2nd race on the card!
