Ghost of Midnight: Won Last 3 by a Total of 16 Lengths

Five year old gelding for Mark Glatt made just his 4th career start on Saturday in a 1st allowance condition sprint at six and a half on the main, 3 and up. Getting a ton of late money even after the gates had closed, he went off as the 4 to 5 choice in a field of six and made short work of this field while tracking the early pace from the outside, and just swooping by the field at the top of the lane and winning for fun by four at the wire. It was his 3rd win in just 4 starts with the other race being a good second to Hejazi. He has won his three races by a total of 16 lengths and should have no trouble with the second allowance condition. He’s making up for lost time as he didn’t make his 1st start until September of his 5th year. Glatt is good with these types of horses. Up the ladder for a very sharp animal.
