Kauai King Wins!

KAUAI KING broke in stride to gain a narrow advantage, continued well out in the track through the initial stretch run, cut to the inside entering the first turn to draw off under patient handling, continued along the inner railing while coasting on the lead, responded when soundly shaken up a quarter out to turn back a bold bid from STUPENDOUS in the upper stretch and was under hard left-handed whipping to hold ADVOCATOR safe. The latter, away in good order, but reserved off the pace for three-quarters, moved up boldly along the outside on the second turn, dropped back a bit in the midstretch, but came again to finish strongly. BLUE SKYER allowed to settle in stride and unhurried for six furlongs, rallied along the extreme outside leaving the backstretch, cut between horses entering the stretch and closed badly under extreme pressure. STUPENDOUS, in hand for a half-mile, advanced steadily along the inside thereafter to loom boldly through the upper stretch, but appeared to hang through the closing drive. ABE'S HOPE, slow to begin, was forced to come wide when launching his rally on the second turn, remained on the outside entering the stretch and was gaining slowly at the finish. REHABILITATE closed a big gap following a sluggish beginning. AMBEROID stumbled at the start and was far back throughout. SKY GUY broke out at the start into TRAGNIEW. Scratched - Sean E Indian.
