Naval Aviator: Can Run All Day With More Patient Ride

Was slow into stride and settled near the back around the first turn. He made a middle move as they approached the far turn and was right off the two leaders while in between horses. However, he started spinning his wheels around the far turn and looked like he would be up the track. The colt kept running on late, though, and did finish 4th beaten around three lengths. With a more patient ride, he could move up closer as he seems like he can run all day.
