Acquired Class: Quality Running Improved With Blinkers

Three year old gelding for Peter Miller made start #3 in Saturday’s finale, a sprint on the turf at six and a half for maiden special weights, all 3 years old. Off at 5/1 in a field of 12, he made the running right from the start under J.J. but had plenty of company on the front end. He put the speed away at the top of the lane, then found another gear and ran the final in quarter in a brisk 23.05 to win going away by three at the wire. When a speed horse can run the final quarter faster than the first (23.05 vs. 23.37) and still put the other speed away, you have a quality runner. This was his 1st start with blinkers and they made a world of difference for this son of Cairo Prince. Miller has a good one here and the $12.00 mutuel wasn’t hard to take with the leading rider up. Up the ladder.
