Get the Gold: Charged To Win By Four And Should Be Tough Right Back

Three year old colt for Kristin Mulhall, who was coming back off a four month freshening, didn’t get the gold, but he got the money in this Cal bred maiden special weight event on Saturday. Off at 3/1 in a field of 8 at a mile on the turf, he sat in third down the back side just three lengths back of the leaders. Franco put him to a drive at the top of the lane, found a seam just off the fence, and he charged through to win by four going away at the wire. It was a strong performance and far and away his best race in six attempts. It doesn’t take a lot to win the first allowance condition for Cal breds, and the way he won this race and galloped out, he should be tough right back. Mulhall is an excellent conditioner and Franco is an underrated jock.
