General George Wrap Up

"The expected showdown came to fruition this afternoon when local favorite Ah Day wrested command early but was unable to hold off New York invader Silver Wagon, who charged by in deep stretch to capture the $300,000 Grade II General George Breeders’ Cup Handicap at Laurel Park.

Silver Wagon, a six-year-old grey-roan son of Wagon Limit, carried jockey Edgar Prado to victory in 1:23.13 for the seven furlong distance run over the main track. They beat Ah Day and Ryan Fogelsonger by 1-1/4 lengths, while longshot speedster Ryan’s For Real held on to be third.

The race unfolded with Ryan’s For Real charging to the lead, with Ah Day in close attendance in second. Ah Day hooked the leader and forged to the front entering the far turn. He kept that position the next-to-the-last call, when Prado brought Silver Wagon out of traffic, gave him his head and took command."- Laurel Park Website
As expected, this was a great race. For once, a race lived up to the hype. Wish I could say the same for Hard Spun.
