Thunderian: Look For a Move Forward on the Stretchout

Comebacker made his sprint debut today and this may have been a prep. While he was away slowly, he was rushed up to settle behind the leaders up the backstretch and moved to the outside as then entered the turn. The soph couldn’t keep up with the two leaders in the stretch, but he did hold on for third. Look for him to move forward on the stretchout.
