Bourbon Bay: clear of field for 2nd while rounding back into form

Was hustled out of the gate and was part of a four horse speed duel up the backstretch. He tried to match strides entering the stretch with the eventual winner, but couldn’t. However, he was well clear of the field for 2nd and it seems the gelding is rounding back into form.
