Irish Honor: May Need a Race on the Outside

Looked like a green 2-year-old up the backstretch with his head held up high while dropping back to near the back around the turn under the whip. However, he was steered to the outside entering the stretch and rallied well to finish 2nd behind a runaway winner. The gelding must not like the kickback and may need to race on the outside of all runners for his best.
