Motion to Strike: Run Down While on The Slower Inisde Rail But Fought Bravely

Yet another frontrunner that raced on the slower inside only to be run down by the outside closers in the stretch. The gelding really did fight on bravely in the stretch and was only passed with about 6-7 strides before the wire. A fairer track could help him show more stick in his next start.
