Ridden by Joel Rosario, the 2-year-old colt ran 1 1/16 miles in 1:41.63 on the turf and survived a claim of foul by jockey Rosie Napravnik aboard runner-up International Star for interference. He paid $6.50, $3.80 and $3.10 as the 2-1 second choice in a field of eight juveniles.

International Star returned $5.10 and $4 for second, 2 1/2 lengths ahead of Nutty Futty, who paid $4.80 to show. The favorite Strong Coffee, Designed for War, Hot Tin Roof, Creaky Cricket and Kutuzov completed the order of finish in the $200,000 race.

In Thursday's co-feature, Brilliant Match captured the $75,000 Mr. Walter M. Jeffords Stakes for steeplechasers by 1 3/4 lengths over favored Cat Feathers.

Mike Dempsey Mike covers the New York racing circuit (Aqueduct, Belmont Park, and Saratoga) year round as well as Keeneland, Churchill Downs, the Triple Crown, and the Breeders' Cup.
The 2015 Triple Crown saw Mike correctly predict American Pharoah to win both the Preakness Stakes and Belmont Stakes. Mike nailed the Exacta and Trifecta in the Belmont Stakes.

Mike had a solid 2014 Triple Crown race season, correctly picking the winning horse in 2 of 3 races. He selected I'll Have another to win The Preakness, and nailed Union Rags to win the Belmont Stakes as his top pick.

Mike also had past success in the Kentucky Derby, winning with Animal Kingdom in 2011 and rode his top picks, Super Saver and Street Sense, to the finish line in 2010 and 2007 respectively.
