Swift Tap: Wide Throughout Trip While Track Favored the Inside

A gelding who was awful in his last two starts may have been the winner in this affair if not for a wide-throughout trip over a track that favored the inside. He did show his usual early speed as a four horse duel developed as they left the chute and he was in the five-path up the backstretch. It was then a three horse race from the middle of the turn until the wire. It appeared he would be able to grind out the win in deep stretch, but the two runners to his inside re-rallied and ‘Tap finished 3rd.
